A New York homeowner who won a $1.6 million verdict when runoff water flooded his property is not entitled to punitive damages.  The homeowner, who is “petrified” of bullfrogs because of a childhood incident, wanted an additional $250,000 in damages for the frogs that now inhabit the flooded land.  However, as part of the verdict, a drainage ditch will be dug in the hopes that the water recedes and the frogs leave with it.
