Lets see, the Supreme Court has said that money = speach and cannot be restricted. Corporations, and unions, can spend what ever they want.

But juries cannot tell a corporation they were bad with a loud and clear statement by the ammount that company needs to pay.

Sounds like companies want to resrict the free speech rights of juries.
