Description

The Spectator examines the astonishing rise in punitive damage awards affirmed by Alabama appelate courts. Plaintiffs see the oppurtunity for riches. Juries, flexing the populist muscle, exercise their right to teach large corporatins that you don't mess with Alabamans. Lawyers are only doing their jobs, which in some of the larger cases can result in hauling away half the settlement loot. (April 1996)
