Justice Kennedy issues stay in Icicle Seafoods v. Clausen

SCOTUSblog is reporting that Justice Kennedy has ordered a stay of enforcement in the Icicle Seafoods case we blogged about earlier this month.  The order prevents plaintiffs from collecting on their $1.3 million punitive damages award while the defendant's cert. petition is pending, on the condition that the defendant's appeal bond remains in effect during that time.
