Haply Inc. contracts with Barksdale LLC to have an
engine repaired. After much negotiation,
the parties agree that the pump will be repaired and reinstalled at Haply’s
facilities in 5 days. Haply plans on
losing $40,000 a day for each day the engine is not delivered after the
five-day window (this is the cost for a replacement engine).
Haply talks Barksdale’s representatives that if the
engine is not repaired on time that bad press will cause Haply to lose a
client’s business totaling $3,000,000. Barksdale
does not complete the contract until day 7.
It cost Haply $500 to secure the delivery of a
replacement engine. The actual rental of
the replacement engine cost $40,000 a day.
And, Haply lost the business of a client totaling $3,000,000. Haply sues Barksdale for incidental,
consequential and compensatory damages. The
court finds that there is a breach of contract. What are the consequential, incidental, and
compensatory damages that Barksdale is liable for in this case? Be sure to define each of those terms.
