3.15-8  Tortious Interference - Punitive Damages

Revised to January 1, 2008

The plaintiff also seeks punitive damages.  The plaintiff can recover punitive damages only if you find that the defendant had a reckless indifference to the rights of the plaintiff or committed an intentional or wanton violation of the plaintiff's rights.  If you find that the plaintiff is entitled to punitive damages, you should indicate that on the verdict form, and I will determine the amount at a later hearing before me.

Authority

Hi-Ho Tower, Inc. v. Com-Tronics, Inc., 255 Conn. 20, 29-31 n.8 (2000).
