Restitution & Volunteers
When defendant has been unjustly enriched at plaintiff's expense, plaintiff is entitled to seek restitution. Among the rules and principles that qualify a plaintiff's right to seek restitution is the notion that a "volunteer" is not entitled to seek restitution. In this lesson, we explore the concept of "volunteer" in an effort to determine who should be regarded as a volunteer and who should not. The lesson is intended for those who have studied these issues in class and wish to further refine their knowledge.
