4.5-7  Damages - Cover

Revised to January 1, 2008

Any damages you award on the __ count may include the plaintiff's extra cost to make a reasonable purchase of comparable goods to substitute for those that the defendant seller was supposed to provide.  If you find that the plaintiff, acting in good faith and without unreasonable delay, made a substitute purchase, and that the price paid for those substitute goods was more than what the plaintiff was to pay the defendant under the original contract, your award of damages should include that extra amount the plaintiff had to pay.
