Baker v. Exxon Mobile Corp., 04-35182

In an action for property damage based on an oil spill caused by Defendant's tanker, the District Court's order awarding post-judgment interest on punitive damages starting in 2008 is reversed, where the Supreme Court "meaningfully ascertained" Plaintiffs' entitlement to punitive damages in 1996, and thus that was the proper date from which to start the post-judgment interest.
