Punitive damages have long been the subject of debate and the focus of reform efforts at both state and local levels of government. This new Seventh Edition covers all the latest developments in an expanding area of law. The two-volume set covers tort reform state by state, and a wide range of pretrial, trial, and post-trial strategies. To meet the increased demands for information on foreign legal systems as foreign markets consolidate, Punitive Damages also includes a chapter on comparative law. This text, which includes citations to literally thousands of cases and articles, remains a leading authority on the subject of punitive damages and has been cited by many courts and commentators, including numerous times by the Supreme Court of the United States.
