Tort lawsuits get more press attention, but contract cases outnumber tort cases in many courts.

Yet comparatively little has been written on the topic of contract damages. This article summarizes the legal principles recognized by Michigan courts as governing the measurement of, and limitations on, damages for breach of contract.
