Supreme Court Not Likely to do Much on Punitives

So says (accurately) this Legal News Line piece, noting as a harbinger the recent withdrawal of cert. in the Williams case.  Even with the Baker case providing a 1:1 hard ratio in maritime law, I think it's right to say that the Court is steering well clear of being a very active gatekeeper beyond the guidance it has already set down.
