Lost Profits Recoverable as Consequential Damages if Foreseeable

Perini Corp. v. Greate Bay Hotel & Casino, Inc., 610 A.2d 364, 129 N.J. 479 (1992)

In this case, a casino owner sought judicial enforcement of an arbitration award of lost profits against the general contractor hired to manage the casino renovation project.  The project took longer to complete than anticipated and the casino was not fully operational for its peak summer season.  The court held that lost profits may fall under the category of consequential damages and are therefore recoverable as long as they are foreseeable at the time of contract.
