MO: Legislative Update: Punitive Damages Reform

Presented by Experts from Shook, Hardy & Bacon L.L.P.
Hosted by Missouri Chamber of Commerce

Too often the threat of large, unpredictable punitive damage awards has been used as a litigation club to force settlements unrelated to the merits of a case. Senate Bill 591, signed into law this year, promotes greater predictability and fairness with respect to punitive awards. But it will only help put a stop to outlandish punitive damages if properly implemented. Defense attorneys must respond to any proposed attempts by plaintiff lawyers to circumvent or dilute the intended impact of the reform. In this webinar, experts from Shook, Hardy & Bacon L.L.P. will delve in-depth into this critical new law and how it can best be applied to advance justice.
