I previously blogged (links below) the lawsuit by David Rudovsky
(Penn) and Leonard N. Sosnov
(Widener) against West, claiming that they were falsely identified as the authors of a poorly researched “sham” supplement to their treatise, Pennsylvania Practice: Criminal Procedure Law, Commentary and Forms
. The authors stopped working on the treatise when West cut their annual pay from $5,000 to $2,500 each.
A federal district court jury in Philadelphia has awarded $2.5 million in punitive damages and $90,000 in compensatory damages each to Professors Rudovsky and Sosonov. West says it plans to appeal.
