Calif: punitives in contract cases?

J. Craig Williams sounds the alarm about a new California Supreme Court opinion (authored, whether curiously or not, by libertarian-admired Justice Janice Rogers Brown) which would seem to open a door for lawyers to start claiming punitive damages in contract disputes. More: George Wallace, however, considers concern about the case overblown, suggesting that it leaves the tort/contract frontier little if at all changed (Jan. 8).
