Mayer, Brown, Rowe & Maw LLP lawyers say Supreme Court took important step in limiting punitive damages

April 9, 2003 - In published news reports, Mayer, Brown Rowe & Maw LLP partners Andrew Frey and Evan Tager noted that the Supreme Court's decision in State Farm v. Campbell, No. 01-1289, took an important step in limiting excessive punitive damage awards. This decision helps clarify the meaning of a 1996 case involving BMW, in which the Supreme Court also overturned a punitive damage award. Mayer, Brown, Rowe & Maw LLP represented BMW in the 1996 case and filed a brief on behalf of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in the State Farm case.
