Steenberg Homes (Steenberg) (defendant) sold a mobile home to a neighbor of the Jacques (plaintiffs). Because of snow on the nearest town road, the easiest way for Steenberg to deliver the mobile home was over the Jacques’ property. However, the Jacques refused to grant Steenberg permission to do so. Steenberg proceeded to deliver the mobile home across the Jacques’ property anyway. The Jacques notified the sheriff, and Steenberg was issued a $30 citation. The Jacques also sued Steenberg. At trial, the jury awarded the Jacques $1 in nominal damages and $100,000 in punitive damages. However, the circuit court set aside the award of $100,000, and the court of appeals affirmed. The Jacques appealed.
