Punitive Damages: A Supporting Theory

Alabama Law Review, 40 Ala. L. Rev. 1227 (1989)

Abstract:     
Scholarly opinion overwhelmingly opposes the trend toward truly punitive damages. If Lord Keynes's observation is correct, then damages intended to punish are, after only a brief maturity, condemned to pass away. The winds of the popular and judicial summer will carry them off because there is no hedgerow of theory to break that wind and hold them fast.
