Can a party receive punitive damages during summary judgment around here?
Punitive damages are usually very fact specific, so it would be difficult for them to be awarded in a summary judgment motion. However, that does not mean that they cannot.
Legal disclaimer: No attorney-client relationship is formed by this communication. Any recommendation/information given through Avvo should be considered only as opinion.
Yes, you could get punitive damages on summary judgment. Probably not super common, but very possible.
