Cox said in a statement provided to the media that it would appeal the results.

The lawsuit comes after BMG sued Cox, which in 2015 awarded $25 million to the company. However, the verdict was overturned in the 2018 appeal, although Cox paid the settlement to BMG before a retrial could take place.
