The article reports that according to tire manufacturer Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co., Nevada Supreme Court's 32.2 million dollars compensatory damage verdict against the company is an example of a "sentence first, verdict afterwards" mentality. The verdict was given in the case of a rollover accident in which three people were killed. The plaintiffs claimed that they were driving from Nevada to Kansas when a Goodyear Load Range E tire blew out and caused the vehicle to roll over.
