Supplemental Damages

  • Court May Award Supplemental Damages For Gap Before Verdict Date: “The jury instruction and jury verdict forms should make clear the period for which the jury is supposed to determine damages. If that period ends before the date of the jury verdict, the district court may award supplemental damages in light of that gap period.” Warsaw (Fed. Cir. 03/02/15); SynQor (Fed. Cir. 03/13/13) (amount of supplemental damages following jury verdict “is a matter committed to the sound discretion of the district court,” and may or may require new jury trial).
