Financial awards in civil trials and child support cases are often - and by often, I mean nearly always - based upon the defendant/respondent's ability to pay, not the reality of the situation. Punitive awards in civil trials are used to deter the same conduct from occuring again. The reality is that Canseco needed a punishment and the plainitff needed to be compensated for his injury. Apparently both happened. Canseco obviously inflamed the jury.
