On Feb. 19, The Law & Economics Center at Antonin Scalia Law School held the “Symposium on the Economics and Law of Civil Remedies: Developments in Damages and Nationwide Injunctions.”

The event brought together a diverse group of scholars and experts in four panels to discuss critical remedies-related topics facing lawyers, litigants, judges, state attorneys general, state and federal government administrators, federal and state legislators, and others today. Topics included nationwide injunctions, punitive damages, high damage awards and their causes and consequences, methods of calculating damages including recent controversies over medical finance and phantom damages, and proposed and enacted legislative interventions in each of these categories.

The second panel of the day addressed “Developments in Punitive Damages” and the panelists were:

  • Eric D. Holland, Owner and Partner, Holland Law Firm, LLC
  • Evan M. Tager, Partner, Mayer Brown
  • W. Kip Viscusi, University Distinguished Professor of Law, Economics, and Management and Co-Director, PhD Program in Law and Economics, Vanderbilt Law School
  • Navan Ward, Principal, Beasley Allen
  • Moderator: Harris L Hartz, Circuit Judge, US Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit
