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.
