Homeland Training Center, LLC. v. Summit Point Auto. Research Center, No. 08-2272

In an action for breach of contract, district court's holding that the  original decision to seek specific performance precluded the non-repudiating party from being able to claim monetary damages is reversed as there is no reason why, as a general matter, a party who initially seeks specific performance cannot later switch his preferred relief to an award of damages in the event that specific performance is rendered impractical or impossible.
