Taylor v. The Devereux Foundation
Amici Anthony J. Sebok and John C. P. Goldberg are law professors with a particular focus in the field of tort law and damages. As scholars in this field, Amici recognize that the issues raised in this case are of tremendous importance to the history, theory, and development of tort law in the United States. The distinction between compensatory damages and punitive damages has long been recognized in both U.S. and Georgia law. Amici have a distinct interest in this Court reaching a correct decision with the benefit of complete and accurate historical information regarding the awarding of punitive damages in English common law, and endeavor to provide a thorough and accurate recounting of this important historical context for this Court’s consideration.
