No Opinion Yet In Exxon Valdez Punitive Damages Case; Ruling Could Come on Wednesday

This morning, the U.S. Supreme Court issued opinions in three of its ten undecided cases from this term, but the Court still hasn't ruled on the Exxon Valdez punitive damages case (Exxon Shipping Co. v. Baker).

The Court has seven undecided cases remaining from this term. Wednesday is the next day on which the Court will issue opinions. Because the Court is not likely to issue all seven opinions on Wednesday, there will probably be at least one more opinion day after that.
