George Mason University School of Law


Cato Supreme Court Review, pp. 315-334, 2006-2007
George Mason Law & Economics Research Paper No. 07-34

Abstract:     
This is a critique of Supreme Court jurisprudence concerning punitive damages. The author claims that the Supreme Court erred in the first of its recent treatments of punitive damages, and that this error has been compounded, resulting in a possibly incoherent state of current law. The various episodes in this jurisprudence are discussed in turn.
