Big Damages in Colorado

Colorado Confidential has a detailed post about a recent case against Qwest Communictions for injuries to a lineman who was left a paraplegic after a utility pole collapsed.  Somewhat surprisingly, the trial judge increased an already-large punitive damage award (from $18 million to $45 million, if I'm doing my math in my head right).
