Judgement for the case Robinson v Harman

 “As to the damages which plaintiff is entitled to recover, the rule of the common law is, that a party who has sustained loss by reason of a breach of contract is, with respect to damages, to be placed in the same situation as he would have been in if the contract had been performed” (Parke B). This was about a lease being cancelled. The key point is the dictum of Parke B.
