Attorney’s Comments Regarding Mr. Mills’ punitive damages testimony at trial: "Mr. Mills helped the jury to understand the true financial condition of the defendant. Although the defendant has not operated for decades, Mr. Mills was able to examine historical documents, including old news releases, and explain to the jury in clear and understandable terms how that information revealed the defendant’s actual financial condition. Mr. Mills was able to take tax return information received during trial and convey that data to the jury in a way that supported his opinions and assisted them in their task.”
