Quote of the Day - An appeal is when you ask one court to show its contempt for another court.
Now, the victory may be in the hands of the insurance company. Plaintiff won a $165K lawsuit against an insurance company, plus $10 million in punitives. Not happy with the result, the insurance company appealed. First time, the court reduced the award to $1.7 million in punitives. Still not happy, the insurer appealed again.
This time, the appellate court may have gotten the Supreme Court's message. They reduced the punitive damage award to $360,000.
Wanna bet they'll appeal again?
