What Are 'Nominal Damages' In A Civil Claim?
What are nominal damages? Nominal damages are exactly what they sound like “in name only.” These type of damages are typically a very small amount that the court or jury may award to a party that, while successful, they feel for whatever reason does not deserve large damages. This may be because they felt that one party exercised bad faith or simply because they felt that no real harm occurred.
