And Dan Packel of Law360.com reports that "Honda Can't Topple $55M Seat Belt Defect Verdict In Pa."

My earlier coverage of today's Pa. Superior Court ruling -- in a case in which I am serving as appellate counsel for plaintiffs -- can be accessed here. And the appellate briefs filed in the case can be accessed via this earlier post.

Update: In other news coverage, Matt Miller of The Patriot-News of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania reports that "Honda must pay $55.3M to driver paralyzed in rollover crash, Pa. court says."

Programming note: Beginning this afternoon through midday on Friday, I will be attending the Third Circuit's Judicial Conference in Lancaster, Pa.

While the conference is underway, this blog will be updated only at night. Regular programming should return by Saturday. As always while I am traveling, more frequent appellate-related retweets will appear on this blog's Twitter feed.

Access today's rulings of the U.S. Supreme Court in argued cases: The Court today issued rulings in two argued cases. Justice Neil M. Gorsuch did not participate in either ruling, as both cases were argued before he reached the Court.

2. And Justice Thomas delivered the opinion of the Court in Manrique v. United States, No. 15-7250. Justice Ginsburg issued a dissenting opinion, in which Justice Sonia Sotomayor joined. You can access the oral argument via this link.

Update: In early news coverage, The Associated Press reports that "Justices require new appeal for challenging victim awards."
