Often times a jury will agree on some arbitrary method of calculating the amount, like x% of net worth, or x% of revenues in the past year. They have all the defendant's financial information when making this determination.$45.2 million. I hope the judge doesn't reduce it.
I've never been on a jury that had to determine that kind of monetary award. I wonder what the process is. Why 45.2 million? Why not 45 or an even 50? What makes them come up with 45.2?
