Pursuant to Rule 24 (j) of the Utah Rules of Appellate Procedure, I would like to supplement my argument, that evidence of intoxication alone is insufficient to justify an award of punitive damages, found on Page 3 of the Brief on Appeal of respondent, Donald Rogers. The Supreme Court of Arizona recently decided the case of Linthicum v. Nationwide Life Ins. Co., 723 P.2d 673 (1986). One of the major issues in that case dealt with punitive damages and what mental state was required for the imposition of such damages.
