Third Time's The Charm or Three Strikes & You're Out?

We are still waiting for the Court's decision on the cert petition in Philip Morris v. Williams, the Oregon punitive damages case upholding a 100 to 1 ratio despite remand from the U.S. Supreme Court.  The petition has been punted three times now.   Originally scheduled for discussion at the May 22d conference, the petition was re-listed for discussion at the May 29th conference and again at the June 5th conference.   Assuming (a big assumption at this point!) that a decision was reached yesterday, the order will be out on Monday.
