Cert. Denied in Wyeth v. Scroggin (Constitutionality of Partial Retrials)

A few months ago we blogged about the cert. petition in Wyeth v. Scroggin. Today, the Supreme Court denied that petition (see the order list). We'll have to wait a while for the Supreme Court (or some other court) to tackle the problems that can arise when a new trial is limited to the issue of punitive damages.
