Abstract

This note examines the United States Supreme Court's most recent decision involving the judicial review of punitive damage awards. In addition to discussing the history of punitive damages and the role they have played in American jurisprudence, the author explains Honda's importance in the punitive damages debate. The author concludes that the Supreme Court's decision reinforces the necessity of judicial involvement in the punitive damages arena and helps to slow the unsettling explosion of punitive damage awards.
