Exemplary damage lawsuits, Torts -- United States, Yamaha Motor Corp. USA v. Calhoun (Supreme Court case)
The article argues that although the 1996 U.S. Supreme Court case, Yamaha Motor Corp. v. Calhoun, which involved a minor, Natalie Calhoun, who died in a jet Yamaha, provides an additional avenue to recover punitive damages for non-seamen maritime torts in territorial waters, Baker and Townsend cases have rendered it unnecessary.
