Still more on Philip Morris v. Williams



Anthony Sebok has an overview on Findlaw generally agreeing with the earlier assessment raised by me and Jim Copland. Plaintiffs' attorney Eric Turkewitz has similar points about the Justice Stevens dissent.

And Beck and Herrmann do a comprehensive analysis of the law of class actions and punitive damages documenting persuasively the point earlier raised by Mark Moller that Williams will have its most impact in the class-action certification context. (Update: Bill Childs comments.)
