Distinctive aspects of American law (Series)
In January 1990, physician Ira Gore purchased a 1990 BMW 535i from German Auto in Birmingham, Alabama. Several months later he discovered that it had been repainted prior to sale. Dr. Gore filed a lawsuit against BMW, and an Alabama jury awarded him $4 million in punitive damages. While the award was reduced on appeal, the U.S. Supreme Court granted review, setting the stage for a landmark ruling on the constitutionality of punitive damage awards.
