Motion For Supplemental Hull Plating, Um Damages

The prevailing plaintiff filed an unopposed motion seeking an additional $2.28 million in supplemental damages (damages through entry of final judgment) to add to the $31.5 awarded by the jury.  Judge Gilstrap denied the motion, noting that such an award must be based on actual sales information, and not just a per diem estimate by an expert, and directed the parties to put the proposed judgment back into, um, drydock where they could work out the numbers based on actual sales – and calculate interest accurately based on those numbers.
