SSS Appeal Reduced Punitive Damages from $7 Million to $1.05 Million

After being hit with a $7 million punitive damages award in Oregon state court, a Fortune 500 company hired Spotswood Sansom & Sansbury LLC to handle post-trial motions and the appeal. While the posture of the case made elimination of the punitive award virtually impossible, Spotswood attorneys used cutting-edge legal developments to persuade the appellate court to reduce the punitive award to $1.05 million.
