Explanation: Punitive Damages: an award of money to punish the wrongdoer and to discourage all from similar wrongdoing
If the plaintiff in a lawsuit proves that the defendant acted "maliciously" or with fraud, the court might allow an award of "punitive" damages to punish the defendant and to set an example to other people who might be thinking of doing something similar. This is over and above compensation for the actual damages suffered by the defendant. Synonym: exemplary damages
Prayer: the relief sought by the plaintiff in the lawsuit as stated in his pleading to the court
prayer for relief
What the plaintiff asks of the court.
