In Panorama v. Zomba, a case challenging as unconstitutional an award of statutory damages in an amount that is 44 times the amount of actual damages, a petition for certiorari to the United States Supreme Court has been filed.
[Ed. note. By comparison, the award in Capitol v. Thomas, where a motion to set aside the verdict is pending, was approximately 23,000 times the actual damages. -R.B.]
