University of Baltimore Law Review


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.
