    This is a sad commentary on today's courts. They have completely forgotten that trial by jury is the ONLY thing that keeps American's free. Their legacy will be to watch as power dismantle's freedom. It doesn't end with damages in civil cases. Having set this precedent (that the right of the jury to decide what is just may be limited) just watch what the right wingers erode next. Foolish People! Exposing liberty to politics. You have breached your trust.
