Supersedeas Bonds: A Crushing Burden
1 November 1995
The National Law Journal
Suppose a jury has found a company liable for $10 million in compensatory damages and $100 million in punitive damages in a products liability suit. The company's attorneys believe it has an excellent chance to prevail on appeal on the issue of liability, and an even better chance to get the punitive damages thrown out altogether or at least substantially remitted.
