Denny Shupe and Tracey Dolin Waldmann presented the paper “Compensatory Damages in Aviation Litigation: How to Avoid and Reduce Speculation and Faulty Assumptions in Compensatory Damage Awards” in June of 2009 at the ACI Aviation Litigation Conference in Boston, MA. 

The paper addresses how, often, in aviation cases, plaintiff’s assessment of damages involves a high level of speculation which not only can inflate compensatory damages, but which also can run afoul of standard evidentiary practice.
