Three Supreme Court justices -- Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Samuel Alito Jr. and Stephen Breyer -- and five lower court judges are set to dispense hypothetical justice in the Shakespeare Theatre Company's annual mock trial. The case is called Malvolio's Revenge, based on "Twelfth Night." It imagines that Malvolio, the steward to Countess Olivia, has won a $10 million punitive damages verdict for false imprisonment. The judges must decide if the award is constitutional.
