SCOW Summary: I’m Just Not That Crazy About Boats, That’s All

In Clausen v. Icicle Seafoods, Inc. (Wash., March 15, 2012), the Supreme Court held that in a maritime maintenance and cure case the judge determines the amount of attorneys’ fees, not the jury, and that a “jury’s punitive damage award for the willful withholding of maintenance and cure is not limited by federal maritime law cases.”

And because it’s a maritime case, that is pretty much all I have to say about that.
