GLOSSARY TERM  
  Remoteness  
 
  DESCRIPTION  
  Under common law, a party will not be entitled to recover damage or loss suffered if that loss is deemed by the court to be too remote from its cause. For breach of contract, the loss or damage will be too remote unless it can fairly and reasonably be considered as arising naturally from the breach of contract, or such as may reasonably be supposed to have been in the contemplation of both parties at the time the contract was made, as the probable result of its breach. In tort, the loss or damage will be too remote if it was not reasonably foreseeable.
