equitable remedy

  

Definition

Court order that forces a defendant to perform his or her part of a contract, instead of imposing a fine (for non-performance or breach of contract) that lets the defendant 'buy' himself or herself out of his or her obligations under the contract. Courts take this step when they are of the opinion that a payment of damages only is not good enough for a just settlement of the case.
