Definition of SOUNDING IN DAMAGES.


SOUNDING IN DAMAGES.

When an action is brought, not for the
recovery of lands, goods, or sums of money, (as is the case in real or mixed
actions, or the personal action of debt or detinue,) but for damages only, as
in covenant, trespass, &c., the action is said to be sounding in damages.
Steph. Pl. 126, 127.
