DIFFICULTIES WITH DAMAGES AS A GROUND FOR SPECIFIC PERFORMANCE
Abstract:“How do we know when damages are hard enough to quantify to be an inadequate remedy?” This question will be addressed below, where it will be argued that the real question to be asked in each case is not “how difficult is it?“ but rather “how is it difficult?“ to quantify damages. It will further be argued that the difficulty in quantification factor was not rejected in Bronx at all and that quantification difficulties also underlie the award of nominal damages in breach of contract cases, and are at least a factor in explaining the uniqueness of subject matter head.
