Adequate Remedy

Definition - What does Adequate Remedy mean?

Adequate remedy can be defined as a remedy awarded through a private action or by a court (usually performance or money).

Adequate remedy must be appropriate, efficient and practical, and must afford complete satisfaction.

Justipedia explains Adequate Remedy

An example of adequate remedy is a stay away order for a husband who is abusive to his wife; instead of putting him in prison, the court issues an order for him to stay away from her. If he violates the order, he will be arrested.
