Professor Russell Gold’s article, ‘Compensation’s Role in Deterrence,’ published in Notre Dame Law Review

Professor Russell Gold‘s article, “Compensation’s Role in Deterrence,”  was published in the most recent issue of the Notre Dame Law Review (Volume 91, Issue 5).

In the article, Professor Gold argues that compensating victims hinders more wrongdoing than other forms of relief, particularly in terms of damages in class actions. According to Professor Gold, scholars have largely overlooked that firms anticipating harm to their reputations as a result of litigation provides a source of deterrence, and because the American public values victim compensation in civil litigation, compensation enhances the legitimacy of the class device and then bolsters this reputational deterrence.

The abstract of the article follows.  To view the full article, click here.
