Punitive damages cap goes into effect in Tennessee

On October 1st, the Tennessee Civil Justice Reform Act of 2011 took effect, capping punitive damages at $500,000 or two times compensatory damages, whichever is greater. By my count, 31 states now impose caps on punitive damages (or prohibit them altogether).
