This Article begins with an examination of the law of punitive damages, both in Maryland and in other jurisdictions. The author then discusses the question of whether an insured has a right to indemnity against a punitive award, focusing on the issues of insurance policy construction and public policy. A detailed analysis of a recent Maryland opinion on the subject is undertaken, and the author concludes with several recommendations for the Maryland judiciary and the legislature.
