This casebook is a successor to Re and Re, Remedies. It includes materials assembled by James Barr Ames, Zechariah Chafee, and Edward D. Re, as well as a substantial number of new cases and materials assembled by the current editors. The principal subjects covered are damages, equity, and restitution; coverage of each of these subjects includes a brief chapter on history and one or more chapters on modern doctrine.
Punitive damages, remedial defenses, collection, and attorneys' fees are also covered. The emphasis throughout is on private law and common-law decisionmaking, with empirical material on application of remedies interspersed.
