The Las Vegas Review-Journal has a short report from a couple of days ago about a large punitive damage award against Paul Revere Life Insurance Company and UNUM: $60 million! You can read more about it on the website of the attorney who handled the case, Rick Friedman, here. In light of the recent cases from the Supreme Court limiting punitive damage awards, I think we need more information to evaluate how likely this is to withstand yet another appeal.
