Third Time's a Charm?

This case has wandered around the court system for some time. In fact, it's been up to the US Supreme Court twice, and three times ruled on by a local appellate 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?
