Unjust Enrichment

Unjust Enrichment occurs when a person retains money, property, or some other benefit in circumstances where it would be unfair to another person.

The elements of unjust enrichment are:

  1. A benefit conferred on the defendant by the plaintiff;
  2. Appreciation of the benefit by the defendant; and
  3. Acceptance and retention of the benefit by the defendant
  4. In circumstances where it would be inequitable to retain the benefit without payment.
