Restatement Second of Contracts § 371

Damages Based on Reliance Interest

View on Lexis Advance

If a sum of money is awarded to protect a party's restitution interest, it may as justice requires be measured by either

  1. the reasonable value to the other party of what he received in terms of what it would have cost him to obtain it from a person in the claimant's position, or
  2. the extent to which the other party's property has been increased in value or his other interests advanced.
