State Farm Oral Argument Audio

The Philip Morris USA v. Williams oral argument in the United States Supreme Court, scheduled for this Tuesday, October 31, concerns the constitutional limits for punitive damage awards.  In advance of that argument, one might be interested in listening to the oral argument in State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Co. v. Campbell, 538 U.S. 408 (2003), the prior Supreme Court decision governing punitive damages.  Sheila Birnbaum of Skadden Arps argues on behalf of State Farm, and Laurence Tribe of Harvard Law School argues on behalf of Campbell.
