No single decision in recent years has had wider repercussions nor greater impact upon trial advocacy than the decision in Botta v. Brunner. It is probable that within the next few years every state jurisdiction will review the philosophy of the Botta case, and come to a conclusion that will control the method of final argument, in each state, on all the intangible elements of damages.
