Intentional Torts

FAT female dog

Types of damages in Contract cases:

"Naomi licks the puny cons for compensation."

Naomi= nominal
Licks= Liquidated (was in the contract; not unreasonable.)
Puny= punitive
Cons= Consequential (Hadley v. Baxendale)
Compensation= Compensatory


Types of damages in Torts:

"General X.M. Speck is 'out of pocket'."

General= General (pain and suffering, etc.)

X.M.= Exemplary/punitive

Speck= Special damages, i.e., "Show me the receipt"-damages like doctor bills, rental car, etc.

"Out of Pocket"= out of pocket damages in misrepresentation, i.e. the difference between what the plaintiff should have gotten and what he got.
"Civilization is the process of reducing the infinite to the finite."  Oliver Wendell Holmes

I.D. - Inherently Dangerous [(attempted) felony must be inherently dangerous]
I - Independent Felony [[attempted) felony must be independent of the murder, must not be a lesser included offense]
