15 U.S. Code § 6604 - Punitive damages limitations
In any Y2K action in which punitive damages are permitted by applicable law, the defendant shall not be liable for punitive damages unless the plaintiff proves by clear and convincing evidence that the applicable standard for awarding damages has been met.
Punitive damages in a Y2K action may not be awarded against a government entity.
 So in original. Probably should be “institution”.
