Looks like, the Los Angeles Dodgers and comedian Jon Lovitz have kissed and made up after a breach of contract lawsuit.

The baseball club says the funnyman Jon Lovitz is a friend and welcome back at the stadium any time.

Recently, the Dodgers resolved their breach of contract lawsuit against Lovitz over nearly $100,000 in unpaid 2010 season baseball tickets, the Associated Press reports.

Apparently, the breach of contract lawsuit was settled amicably, and to the satisfaction of both parties.

As previously discussed, the breach of contract lawsuit was filed by Delaware-based Dodger Tickets LLC against Jon Lovitz and others for allegedly not paying $95,400 for 2010 season tickets.

According to the complaint, John Lovitz and 100 other individuals agreed to buy three dugout club seats for all baseball games played at Dodger Stadium in 2008, 2009 and 2010.

However, the issue over nonpayment for the 2010 season seats was resolved.

In general, the main remedies for a breach of contract include:

  • damages;
  • specific performance; and
  • cancellation and restitution

Typically, damages are the remedy that most often used for a breach of contract. "Damages" involves payment in one form or another, made by the breaching party to the non-breaching party.

If damages are inadequate, the non-breaching party may sue for "specific performance." "Specific performance" means the court orders the breaching party to performance of its obligations under the contract. 

Lastly, the non-breaching party may cancel the contract and sue for restitution if they have already given a benefit to the breaching party. Restitution means that the non-breaching party is put back in the position it was in prior to the breach.
