When u pea a no contest can the other party ask for a restitution
1 Answer from Attorneys
Yes. Any award of "restitution" is in the discretion of the Court and limited to the jurisdictional authority (limits) of the Court. In doing so you may be limited to a sum less than the damages actually suffered, so it is suggested that you check with the Court first to ascertain if the Court is inclined to Order restitution or damages and if so what monetary limitations would apply in that specific Court.
In Circuit Courts in Mississippi there is no monetary cap on damages.
