No More Blind Man's Bluff on Punitive Damages

Summer 2003
American Bar Association Litigation Magazine, Vol. 29, No. 4

landscape has been dotted with startling jury verdicts—occasionally
in the billions of dollars and not infrequently in the
tens or hundreds of millions—that reflect a system that is too

punishable misconduct while the next imposes an eight- or
nine-digit sanction for the same product design defect or
allegedly deceptive corporate marketing practice.
