LegalNewsLine has an article addressing the recent punitives remand and suggesting that it may be part of a trend of remands based on vague instructions rather than concerns about the constitutionality of the size of the damages awarded.

(The article is written with a definite point of view, incidentally.  Note the conclusion explicit in this sentence: "For the second time in three months on Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court (USSC) sent a lawsuit with an excessive punitive damages awards [sic] back to a lower court to review the amount." (emphasis added))
