(T)he Nashville Marriott and the company that operates it responsible for a little less than $27 million. But Andrews won't get that amount either.The hotel's legal team has not yet announced their plans, but Sanders says they will ask Davidson County Circuit Court Judge Hamilton Gayden to do one of three things -- overturn the whole judgment, ask for a new trial or request a reduction in damages. "It's very rare for a judge to overturn a case like this," says Sanders. "He'd have to believe that the jury had lost its mind."Many legal experts predict that the case will end in a settlement before it goes to appeals court. "If I'm the defendant, I'd make my settlement push now, because the farther this case goes, the stronger the position of Andrews becomes," says Sanders, noting that it's unlikely that an appellate court that wasn't present for the original proceedings would overturn the judgment.
Sanders, who practices in the same county in which this case took place, was surprised at the judgment. "Davidson County juries have a reputation for being parsimonious," he says. "I'm shocked at the amount. There have been people who have been killed because of negligence who've gotten a lot less than this."
I always check the keyhole before undressing.
How in goodness sake can a court award $55,000,000 dollars?
That quote isn't mine.

Years ago a person got a ten figure sum for her McDonald's coffee being too hot.
Liebeck didn't actually get anywhere near that amount of money, at least as far as public record goes. The judge in the case reduced the punitive damages to $480,000, bringing the total judgement down to $640,000. Both sides appealed the decision, but their appeals were never heard as they agreed to an undisclosed settlement during mediation, thought to have been under $600,000.
That never happened so far as I can determine. You should have provided a citation. What I found was a case where a woman sought $2,700,000 but didn't get it.
The jury damages included $160,000 to cover medical expenses and compensatory damages and $2.7 million in punitive damages. The trial judge reduced the final verdict to $640,000, and the parties settled for a confidential amount before an appeal was decided.
It's interesting (sad?) that people apparently add spurious details like that the woman was driving (which she wasn't), but you have to wonder how this made it to court at all.
Always the same ensbb3 when there is no sensible answer.
Why would it being heard be a problem tho?
I see no reason to blame the hotel.
Spurious cases should be thrown out because otherwise the defendant has to waste time and money.
There has to be a limit as to what one can expect from such a business.
