Cert. denied in Shell Oil v. Hebble

Today, the U.S. Supreme Court denied Shell's petition for certiorari in Shell Oil v. Hebble.  (See today's order list.)  Back when the Court called for an opposition to this petition, and re-listed another petition raising punitive damages issues, it appeared that the Court might be interested in wading into the issue of punitive damages once again.  Apparently not.
