IANAL and don't know the case, but I suspect the correct strategy is to sue for as much as you can reasonably justify. If you can spin a story that outlines how you could have suffered 17 billion in damages, it wouldn't make sense to sue for anything less if you have the resources to file the suit. Or would it?
