California Civil Jury Instructions (CACI)

VF-300. Breach of Contract


New April 2004; Revised December 2010, June 2011

Directions for Use

If the verdict form used combines other causes of action involving both economic and non-economic damages, use “economic” in question 6.

The special verdict forms in this section are intended only as models. They may need to be modified depending on the facts of the case.

This verdict form is based on CACI No. 303, Breach of Contract—Essential Factual Elements. This form is intended for use in most contract disputes. If more specificity is desired, see verdict forms that follow.

If specificity is not required, users do not have to itemize the damages listed in question 6. The breakdown is optional depending on the circumstances.

If there are multiple causes of action, users may wish to combine the individual forms into one form. If different damages are recoverable on different causes of action, replace the damages tables in all of the verdict forms with CACI No. VF-3920, Damages on Multiple Legal Theories.
