520    Media coverage of litigation may affect perceptions and 
       thereby behavior of litigants, judges, juries, legislators
       and business decisionmakers. Their behavior influences 
       various legal, social, political and economic outcomes. 
       For product liability verdicts during 1983 to 1996 
       involving automobile manufacturers, the authors examine 
       the amount of coverage in several dozen newspapers. The 
       authors find almost no articles reporting on any of 259 
       verdicts for the defendant. Econometric analysis focuses 
       on determinants of the amount of coverage of 92 verdicts 
       for plaintiffs, 16 of which include punitive damages. Key 
       determinants include the award amount, the nature of 
       injuries, the vehicle's recall history, and especially the
       existence of a punitive component of damages regardless of
       its size.
