A federal judge in New York refused to undo a jury’s multimillion-dollar malpractice finding against a Virginia law firm for its work on a patent application that was abandoned.

Eastern District Judge Pamela Chen said Friday that jurors had “more than adequate evidence in the record” to support a finding that Antonelli, Terry, Stout & Kraus in Arlington, Virginia, had a duty to prosecute Protostorm’s patent application.
