In addition to the false advertising findings, the jury also found that Lexion had proven by a preponderance of the evidence that SurgiQuest intentionally or willfully made a false advertising statement.

The jury further found that Lexion had proven by a preponderance of the evidence that SurgiQuest intentionally or recklessly engaged in unfair competition.
