Order of Magnitude

Heeling Sports has an enforcement campaign against infringers of its roller skate shoes. It botched the first round requesting damages for default judgment. As a result, Central California District Court Judge Florence-Marie Cooper awarded only $280,000 in damages, without explanation. Heeling appealed, which resulted in a remand for the judge to explain herself. Yesterday she did... not explain herself, when she changed her mind and awarded Heeling the $2.8 million it had asked for in the first place. Because sometimes, when money talks, that's all need be said.

So, another remand to explain damages?
