Dominion Res. Inc. v. Alstom Power Inc. (P)

Virginia law applies the collateral-source rule to a breach-of-contract action where the plaintiff has been reimbursed by an insurer for the full amount it seeks in damages from the defendant. Whether the rule applies to a given case, however, requires a case-specific determination of whether the parties’ expectations, in light of those rationales, support the rule’s application.

Certified question answered in the affirmative.

Dominion Res. Inc. v. Alstom Power Inc. (P), No. 181061, Apr. 11, 2019. SCV (Mims) from DCT.
