The jury returned an award of punitive damages in the amount of $250 million against Novartis Pharmaceuticals.  See report.  I discussed this case the other day.  This is the case where a manager told a female applicant, apparently when discussing flex time, "First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes flex time and a baby carriage."  According to this report, the entire class of 5600 women will share the punitive damage award.
