Contract – Damages – Nominal – Unfair Trade Practices – Civil Practice – Appeals – Commercial Sport Fishing Boat (access required)

D G. II, LLC v. Nix The trial court ruled before trial that plaintiff was entitled to the return of its $100,000 deposit; at trial, the jury was entitled to discount the testimony of witnesses who said the boat that defendants built for plaintiff was worth $250,000 more than the contract price. Although the jury should have awarded plaintiff nominal damages on its breach of contract claim, we will not remand for the sole purpose of an award of nominal damages.
