ORDER. For the reasons set forth in the attached, the Court hereby rules as follows:.The Court GRANTS IN PART AND DENIES IN PART Defendant Marinelli's motion for remittitur: the motion is denied with respect to the $250,000 compensatory damages award and granted with respect to the punitive damages award, which I find to be legally excessive. I therefore order a new trial on damages unless, within 21 days of this ruling, Mr. Williams files a statement on the docket accepting a remitted punitive damages award of $50,000, for a total damages award of $300,000. If no such statement is filed, the new trial will cover all damages issues, not just punitive damages. Because Mr. Williams is proceeding pro se and the Court's remittitur order raises complicated issues as to appealability, the Court is willing to hold a conference with the parties, in which Mr. Williams may participate by videoconference, to attempt to answer any questions either party may have on appealability and related issues. The Court emphasizes any such conference will not be a forum for the parties to re-argue the merits of any aspect of this ruling. The sole purpose of the conference would be to assist the parties (and especially Mr. Williams, who is pro se1) in understanding their options for next steps in the case. If either party desires that the Court convene such a conference, that party shall, within 7 days of this order, file a statement on the docket so indicating. 2.The Court DENIES Defendant Marinelli's motion for judgment as a matter of law and motion for a new trial (ECF No. 190). 3.The Court DENIES Plaintiff Williams' motion for judgment as a matter of law (ECF No. 192). 4.The Court DENIES without prejudice Plaintiff Williams' motion for reimbursement of costs of suit (ECF No. 184). 5.The Court DENIES without prejudice Plaintiff Williams' motion to enjoin the State from imposing a statutory lien (ECF No. 185). 6.The Court DENIES AS MOOT Plaintiff Williams' motion for clarification and motion to receive a status report (ECF Nos. 200 and 202). Signed by Judge Michael P. Shea on 2/8/2017. (Howard, H.) Modified document type on 2/16/2017 (LaLone, L.).
