Punitive Damages: Damages awarded in addition to actual damages when the defendant
acted with recklessness, malice, or deceit; specif., damages assessed by way of penalizing
the wrongdoer or making an example to others. Punitive damages, which are intended to
punish and thereby deter which are intended to punish and thereby deter blameworthy
conduct, are generally not recoverable for breach of contract. The Supreme Court has
held that three guidelines help determine whether a punitive-damage award violates
constitutional due process: (1) the reprehensibility of the conduct being punished; (2) the
reasonableness of the relationship between the harm and the award; and (3) the difference
between the award and the civil penalties authorized in comparable cases. BMW of North
America, Inc. v. Gore, 517 U.S. 559, 116 S.Ct. 1589 (1996).
There are two types of relief available for the violation of your civil rights: money
damages and injunctive relief.
Money damages are available for the loss of property
rights and for violations of civil rights done "under color of law". Injunctive relief means
that the government will intervene to stop the individuals who have violated your civil
rights from continuing to do so. Injunctive relief is the only remedy available for many
civil rights violations, including those under the Federal anti-discrimination statutes.
Respectfully submitted, this the 17 th day of the month of June 2014.
