The case now goes back to the Oregon high court, which could order a new trial, reduce the award or reinstate its decision. Punitive damages are money intended to punish a defendant for bad behavior and deter repetition.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

WASHINGTON – The Supreme Court threw out a $79.5 million award that a jury had ordered a cigarette maker to pay to a smoker’s widow, a ruling that could bode well for other businesses seeking stricter limits on big-dollar verdicts. The 5-4 decision Tuesday was a victory for Altria Group Inc.’s Philip Morris USA, which contested an Oregon Supreme Court decision upholding the jury’s verdict. Yet the decision did not address a key argument made by Philip Morris and its supporters across a wide range of businesses – that the size of the award was unconstitutionally large. They had hoped the court would limit the amount that can be awarded in punitive damage cases. Instead, Justice Stephen Breyer wrote in his majority opinion that the award to Mayola Williams could not stand because a jury may punish a defendant only for the harm done to the person who is suing, not to others whose cases were not before it. “To permit punishment for injuring a nonparty victim would add a near standardless dimension to the punitive damages question,” Breyer said. The company had argued that the jury was encouraged to punish Philip Morris for health problems suffered by every Oregonian who smoked its cigarettes. Jesse Williams died of lung cancer in 1997 at the age of 67. He had smoked two packs a day of Philip Morris-made Marlboros for 45 years. His widow argued that the jury award was appropriate because it punished Philip Morris for a decades-long “massive market-directed fraud” that misled people into thinking cigarettes were not dangerous or addictive. She won compensatory damages of $800,000 and punitive damages of $79.5 million – 97 times the compensatory damages – in the fraud lawsuit she filed against Philip Morris. A state court previously cut the compensatory award to $500,000, which is unaffected by Tuesday’s ruling.
In a Sunday story, the Globe says Exxon-Mobile believes it has the expertise to make its west coast LNG project, WCC LNG viable, and it plans to spend up to 25 billion dollars to prove it.The article notes, while Petronas has decided to delay moving forward with its project near Prince Rupert, Exxon-Mobile hopes to secure a provincial environmental assessment certificate by the end of next year.That would allow for a final investment decision in 2017, on its Tuck Inlet terminal, also near Prince Rupert, which it forecasts will require up to 6,000workers at the peak of construction.- Advertisement -The story says, the construction period would take seven years, and if all went according to plan, more than 250 plant workers would be required by 2024, with another 150 contract workers needed to handle the support services.The terminal’s initial, annual shipment capacity to Asian buyers is projected at 15 million tonnes, and with an initial first phase capital cost ranging, from 15 to 25 billion dollars, the project would represent one of the largest LNG industry investments in B.C.However, it wouldn’t be a first for Exxon-Mobile, which has more than 40 years of LNG project development experience in Qatar, New Guinea, and Indonesia.Advertisement Read the full story from the Globe and Mail here.

A shop assistant was head-butted and punched in the jaw when she tried to stop a man stealing a cash register at an Easons bookstore.Lee Mitchell, 31, had entered the shop at Letterkenny and tried to grab money from two cash registers.When a shop assistant tried to stop him, he head-butted her and then punched her in the cheek. The woman suffered a hairline fracture of her nose and also severe bruising.Two local men came to her rescue and tried to intervene but Mitchell managed to run off but was arrested the next day.Mitchell, of 3 Glencar Park, Letterkenny, was charged with both criminal damage and assault causing harm on February 11th last.Mitchell had been remanded in custody to appear at today’s sitting of Letterkenny District Court.He was also charged with two other robberies, both at the Glencar Express Shop in Glencar, Letterkenny on January 9th and 24th last.It was a shop which Mitchell visited three to four times a day.The court heard that during one of the robberies, Mitchell grabbed a bundle of notes amounting to €835 which was later paid to a drug dealer.Solicitor for the accused Frank Dorrian said Mitchell had been on drugs since he was 12 years old and had used a wide range of drugs and had now become addicted to heroin.He said he was not normally violent but the attack on the shop assistant was borne out of desperation.Judge Paul Kelly said he appreciated Mitchell addiction problems but said the public had to be protected.“This a horrific catalogue in this man’s relatively young life. I can’t have a lot of sympathy for him.“In this case a young lady was going about her job and suffered a nasty injury in her attempts to do just that. Whatever the motivation may have been for this, the public has to be protected,” he said.Judge Kelly sentenced Mitchell to a total 12 months in jail on the various offences.AT HEARING STRICTLY © 2011 donegaldaily.com, all Rights ReservedThe copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldailyFollow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldailyHEROIN ADDICT WHO HEAD-BUTTED EASONS SHOP ASSISTANT JAILED FOR 12 MONTHS was last modified: February 20th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegaldaily.comEASONS BOOKSHOPHEROIN ADDICTLee MitchellLetterkenny District Court

“They’ve got some really good running backs,” Calipatria coach David Shaw said of the Falcons. “We haven’t seen any that good yet. We haven’t seen a team like that this season, the best team we’ve seen.” Aquinas intercepted four Calipatria passes. Jared Knowlton had two of the INTs, returning one 35 yards for the Falcons’ fourth touchdown.

His junior brother, Chike, had 52 yards and two TDs on five carries, and cousin Chibu ran for 91 yards and three TDs on just five carries. Chike Amajoyi also intercepted a pass. Aquinas rolled to a 34-0 halftime lead. Calipatria (3-2) avoided a shutout when quarterback Ray Zarate (16-of-31, 178 yards) scored from 3 yards out with 4:35 to play. Aquinas coach Josh Henderson praised his offensive line, specifically guard Sam Solar-Conklin, and quarterback Brandon Windle. “Our offensive line has continued to play hard and Windle has continued to improve,” Henderson said. “The line realizes that what we’ve been doing in practice is exactly how it’s going to be during the game.” Windle completed 4-of-7 passing for 78 yards, all the completions going to Knowlton. Aquinas has a bye next week before facing Santa Clara. “The bye could help us or hurt us,” Henderson said. “It will give us time to heal. We have a lot of banged up players who could come back in time for Santa Clara.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
