Effect of Anchoring in Civil Trials: Do Low-End Anchors and Deliberation Make a Difference?

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The present study attempted to reduce the effects of anchoring on punitive damage awards by including explicit lower limits, as well as by comparing individually decided awards to post-deliberation jury awards. Participants read a trial synopsis, then awarded damages. Deliberation did not reduce the effect of the maximum limit. While the lower limit reduced the effect of the maximum limit for individuals, it did not for groups. When collapsing data across conditions, individual and group awards did not differ. Implementation of lower limits is not yet justified, but continued research using group deliberations is recommended.
