A jury awarded compensatory and punitive damages in this trade secrets case. The Gore guideposts at issue in this case -- reprehensibility and the ratio between punitive and compensatory damages -- do not require a finding that the punitive damages award was grossly excessive. The district court's judgment is affirmed. 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, No. 11-20816, 05-15-2013.
