It's my understanding that the jury awarded her $28M in punitive damages.
The WTS filed a motion for judgment notwithstanding the verdict (arguing that they should have won the case entirely as a matter of law) or in the alternative for a new trial.
If the reports are accurate, I think it means that the judge found the punitive damage amount to be excessive and would have granted a new trial on the amount of punitives damages. However, the judge's ruling contained the proviso that if Candace Conti accepted a reduction in the amount of punitive damages to the amount specified by the judge (varying amounts of the reduction are being reported now in different JWN threads), then the award is reduced to that amount and the WTS' motion is denied.
If, as this report indicates, she accepted the reduction in punitive damages to the amount set by the judge, then that's the final verdict at the trial court level... no new trial and the WTS' only choices are to pay up or appeal. If they appeal and lose, they will also have to pay interest on the amount the appellate court rules was proper.
