Explanation & AnswerSolution by a verified expert

Explanation

The purchase price for Items S could not be recovered by Individual J because of already having a timely knowledge about the cancellation of the manufacturing of Items S by Individual S.
 
The actual damages are not recoverable but Individual J is eligible for some compensatory damages. This is because Individual J didnot request Individual S to compensate for the damage for stopping the Items S manufacturing immediately.The amount of damages recoverable to Individual J depends on proving unreasonable damages causation by the Individual S.

Verified Answer

Individual J is not eligible to recover the purchase price of the Items Sbecause Individual S has already informed Individual J not to manufacture additional Items S.
 
Individual J can claim compensatory damages because the actual damages were not claimed at the time when Individual S requested to stop the manufacturing of Items S. Individual S has evidence to prove the same.
