People v. Stanley (Cal. Supreme Ct. - July 9, 2012)

When you buy a truck for its fair market value of $950, and two years later someone vandalizes it, it's not a "windfall" for the court to order the defendant to pay you over $2800 -- which was the estimate that you got to repair your $950 car.

So holds the California Supreme Court.  Unanimously.
