Punitive Damages: How Juries Decide

Punitive Damages examines the role of one of the United States� most prized democratic institutions: juries. The authors, including legal experts, psychologists, and an economist, used over 600 mock juries to analyze the decision-making processes of jurors, specifically on the issue of punitive damage awards. The authors learn how jurors make vastly different punitive damage awards�even in factually identical cases�and how this can affect our understanding of the jury institution in a broader context.

Cass R. Sunstein, et al., Professor, University of Chicago School of Law (University of Chicago Press, 2002)
