A $5 million verdict for trademark and trade dress infringement sounds great on the surface for Monster Energy Co. in its trial with a Florida automotive supply company.

But a strange thing happened on the verdict form handed in Friday following a nine-day trial in Los Angeles. Jurors awarded all $5 million as punitive damages, and zero as damages for the infringement. That raises the possibility that Monster may collect nothing, and might even be out of luck on injunctive relief.
