English term or phrase: statutorily multiple damages
Jednostavno je nabrojana kao stavka u vrsti mogućih šteta. Čula sam i za statutory damages i multiple damages, ali ovo mi ne znači ništa. Niti mogu naći neki dobar izvor koji bi mi bar objasnio što bi pojam mogao značiti.

zakonom propisane višestruke štete
Explanation:
Ovo je pojam iz common law sustava - vrsta šteta za koje je propisana kazna (punitive damages), odnosno način na koji se određuje (odno. zakonom propisuje) njihov iznos:

Punitive damages may either be a statutorily fixed multiple sum of the loss caused (multiple damages) or undetermined and left to the discretionary power of the judge.

Except statutorily regulated forms of fixed multiple damages, there is no coherent system of determining the sum of punitive damages in legal systems where they are accepted.
