A Los Angeles jury Monday socked a Rhode Island insurance company with a $57.8-million punitive verdict for wrongly rejecting massive damage claims from a 1991 hurricane that devastated the U.S. territory of American Samoa. The punitive award is double the $28.9 million in actual damages that the Los Angeles County Superior Court jury found was suffered by the government of American Samoa, which held the hurricane insurance policy. The total judgment against the insurer is $86.7 million.
