California follows Rest.2d Torts sec. 920 in allowing a reduction of a plaintiff’s damages if the defendant’s tortious conduct has conferred a special benefit on the plaintiff as well as damaging the plaintiff. But the reduction is permitted only to the extent it is equitable to reduce damages. In weighing the equities, the court can consider not only whether the plaintiff wanted whatever benefit the defendant allegedly conferred on it (the defendant cannot force an unwanted benefit on an unwilling plaintiff) but also such other equitable considerations as the intentional nature of the defendant’s conduct, its damaging effect that the damage award may not fully compensate. Substantial evidence supported the trial court’s refusal to reduce plaintiff’s damages for the special benefit defendant’s intentionally fraudulent conduct allegedly conferred on the plaintiff.
