A Claim Is Unliquidated if It Requires the Exercise of Judgment or Discretion

Tort claims are usually unliquidated, but a contract claim is liquidated if it’s precisely determinable by agreement or operation of law, Judge Lori Vaughan says.

Comments

I appreciate Judge Vaughan digging into how to analyze whether a claim is liquidated, although I wonder where the line is for a "simple calculation." Based on the summary, it seems like the bar is somewhat high when trying to demonstrate that a claim is liquidated without a final judgment and/or clear contract.
