Philip Morris – Another Take on The Stevens Dissent

On Friday I wrote about the death of the 9-1 punitive damage ratio that defendants like to claim exists, in: Philip Morris Punitive Damages Decision — Why It Was Good For Plaintiffs. I focused on the Stevens dissent and also discussed Breyer’s commentary at oral argument.

Today, Anthony Sebok at FindLaw takes a more in-depth look on the same subject with:
