Please join me in Charleston this coming September for a symposium on punitive damages. Last February, the United States Supreme Court added another layer to its punitive damages jurisprudence in Philip Morris USA v. Williams, 127 S. Ct. 1057 (2007). This one-day symposium brings together distinguished scholars, judges, and practitioners to engage in a dialogue concerning the implications of Philip Morris, and more generally, the role of punitive damages in modern litigation.
Symposium panelists include Elizabeth J. Cabraser of Lieff Cabraser, Robin Conrad of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Theodore Eisenberg of Cornell University Law School, Andrew L. Frey of Mayer Brown (and counsel for Philip Morris in the USSC), John Y. Gotanda of Villanova Law, Laura J. Hines of University of Kansas Law, Keith Hylton of Boston University School of Law, Robert S. Peck of the Center for Constitutional Litigation (and counsel for Mayola Williams in the USSC), Michael Rustad of Suffolk University Law School, Victor Schwartz of Shook Hardy, Tony Sebok (soon-to-be of Cardozo), Cathy Sharkey of Columbia Law, and Neil Vidmar of Duke Law.
