Damages Reduced in EPI Products Suit: Superior Court Judge Hiroshi Fujisaki reduced the punitive damages awarded by a Santa Monica jury in June in a lawsuit filed by a woman who contended that she was cut out of profits from the Epilady hair removal gadget. Punitive damages against Solomon Krok were reduced to $12 million from $24 million, against Arlene Krok to $1.5 million from $2.34 million and against Sharon Krok Feuer to $250,000 from $1 million. The plaintiff, Patricia Jones, was given 10 days to decide if she will accept the reduced damages or a new trial on the punitive damages. The jury had awarded another $13.7 million in compensatory damages.
