California Appeals Court Upholds Award of Punitive Damages in Retaliation Case

​A previous retail store supervisor for T‑Mobile Usa was entitled to $one.five million in punitive damages in his retaliation lawsuit, a California appeals court ruled. The district supervisor who fired the retail store supervisor was a “running agent” of T‑Mobile, and his actions were being committed with “malice” or “oppression,” the court concluded. This satisfies the demands for an award of punitive damages underneath California legislation.
