CACI 3903I is a California civil jury instruction that outlines how to calculate economic damages in cases where perennial crops have been damaged.
The instruction provides a formula for calculating damages based on the lost profits from the crop. Here is a breakdown of the formula and an example calculation:
This calculation represents the economic damages for the loss of the crop.
However, it’s important to note that there may be additional damages to consider, such as the cost of replanting or repairing the damage. These additional damages would need to be calculated separately and added to the economic damages calculated using the CACI 3903I formula.
