In-state plaintiff, out-of-state corporate defendant...



I don't know the details of this case, in which DuPont has just been condemned to pay $200 million in punitive damages, but one quote in this very brief West Virginia Record is priceless:

"Plaintiff Waunona Crouser told the Associated Press that things have been stressful since the suit was filed three years ago, but she never doubted the jury would do the right thing. "They're West Virginians and that's how we are in the state of West Virginia."

'Nuff said.
