Whittier Law Review Publishes "A Tale of Two Liberals: Departure at Supreme Court Review of Punitive Damages"

The Spring 2008 edition of the Whittier Law Review includes an article by Jenni Khuu Katzer, an attorney with Newmeyer and Dillion, comparing the punitive damages jurisprudence of Justices Breyer and Ginsburg. The article points out that Justice Breyer has consistently supported the imposition of constitutional limits on the amount of punitive damages, while Justice Ginsburg has consistently sided with Justices Scalia and Thomas in opposing such limits. I don't have a link to the article, but the citation is 29 Whittier L. Rev. 625.
