2 Critical Analysis This paper aims to discuss and examine the case law,  Wrotham Park Estate Co Ltd v  Parkside Homes Ltd.  and analyze the reasons why Brightman J in this case believe that there  will be unjust if the nominal sum is awarded to the plaintiffs. The measure of damages  (restitution interest/remedy (remedy Campbell, restitution for breach of contract) and  damages in lieu of injunction will also be explained. Furthermore, the relevant case laws will  be included. Before considering the decision of Brightman J in  the Wrotham Park Estate Co Ltd v  Parkside Homes Ltd  case, the remedies available for breaches of contract will be analyzed. A  breach of contract gives rise to an action for damages. There are three different measures of  damages that can be recovered on a breach of contract. First, the contract law might protect  ‘the expectation interest'. Secondly, the interest protected is ‘the reliance interest'. Thirdly,  ‘the restitution interest' is protected. However, the reliance interest will not be explored in  this paper. The claimant's expectation interest is commonly protected by an award of damages  for breach of contract. The award of damages aims to compensate the claimant's loss which  he has derived as a result of the defendant's breach of contract. Parke B stated this principle  in  Robinson v Harman  that the claimant who suffers a loss as a result of a breach of contract  ‘….is, so far as money can do it, to be placed in the same situation, with respect to damages,  as if the contract had been performed.' The expectation interest concentrates on the  claimant's loss. The claimant will not be awarded damages more than his actual loss. Where
