The danger for the business world is that some juries may decide to pile on the punitive damages to send a strong message to defendants. This threat can prompt corporate defendants to settle cases—even ones they believe are meritless—to avoid exposure to potential mega-verdicts. One does not have to look far to find recent examples of massive punitive awards. Exxon Mobil Corp. First, the plaintiffs in these cases were a state government and a corporation.
This was not the first such ruling from the high court, which twice before in the past eight years made less definitive statements to rein in punitive damages.
