The Supreme Court threw out a $79.5 million punitive-damages award against cigarette maker Philip Morris. The high court voted 5-4 to overturn the jury verdict in the Oregon case, ruling it violated earlier high court decisions on limits to punitive damages. The decision could further curb the size of product-liability awards against companies beyond new limits the Supreme Court outlined in a 2003 State Farm ruling.
