This article explores when and how punitive damages should be applied in securities arbitration. It briefly outlines the nature of punitive damages and traces the background of securities arbitration. It then proceeds to explore whether punitive damages, in any form permitted in courtroom litigation, should be available for use as a remedy by non-judicial arbitrators sitting in consensual forums involving securities disputes.
