What is a Remedy?

Mathew Kerbis, The Subscription Attorney

This show brings bite-sized educational minutes every week about different legal topics.

On today’s episode, Mathew Kerbis, The Subscription Attorney, answers the question, "What is a remedy?"

A remedy is how damages are paid.

For example, money, like we talked about last week, but there's other remedies.

Another example is injunctive relief.

That means you're asking a court to have somebody do or not do something.

If somebody is saying untrue things about you, a court could order that they stop doing it.

If you have secrets of a business, and you share them, then injunctive relief can be a court ordering you to delete or get rid of it.

If you were in a contract with somebody and the other person did their promise but you didn't keep your promise, a court could order you to keep your promise.

That's called specific performance.

If there's a disagreement about what a contract says, then a court order can provide declaratory relief, meaning the court will explain the actual meaning of those words in the contract.
