Thompson supports unlimited damages
Fred Thompson (like his employers the trial lawyers) thinks there is no problem with unlimited punitive damages.
"...never has the legislature imposed a dollar limit in cases where damages and negligence have already been proven.
I recognize that several other states have imposed such rules. It's understandable. The pressure to do so is very strong. That does not make it right or sound policy. Tennessee does not make a habit of simply following a path that has been cut by others"
