Punitive Damages Panel

By fiebigerste51715443, Nov 18 2017 04:48AM

I was pleased to serve on a panel of lawyers at the Minnesota Chapter of the National Employment Lawyers Association on Tuesday, November 14, 2017, on punitive damages. The semiar focused on when to seek punitive damages, procedures, obstacles, and grounds for seeking punitive damages. Punitive damages can be awareded in certain cases to punish the offender. In Minnesota. cases that do not have a statutory provision for punitive damages must bring a motion to amend the complaint for punitive damages before they can be sought. In some cases, a punitive damages claim is proper and a mechanism for punising offenders in violation of Minn. Stat. Sec. 549.20. for a deliberate disregard for the rights and safety of others.
