Waiting for the Supremes

The California Supreme Court has on its docket a case against Philip Morris in which the punitive damages award was 33 times the compensatory damages.  As you'll recall, the U.S. Supreme Court granted cert. on an Oregon case with a 100:1 ratio.  So the California court, rather sensibly I think, decided to wait until the Oregon case is decided.
