New opinion — breach-of-contract damages

This appeal arises from a contractual dispute between a sports-car racing team and its sponsor. At trial, the district court found that the sponsor breached its contract and awarded the team $7 million in damages, but it refused to award additional damages on failure-to-mitigate, windfall, and policy grounds. On appeal, CA3 affirmed the damages awarded and reversed the damages denied, remanding for further proceedings.

The case is Vici Racing v. T-Mobile. Opinion by Baylson EDPA by designation, joined by Ambro and Greenaway. Arguing counsel were James Martin for the sponsor and Joseph Klock for the team.
