The economic theory of deprivation is that a party has been deprived of the economic enjoyment associated with the ownership or use of an asset, property, or business interest. The legal remedy for a deprivation is to return that plaintiff party to the level of economic utility or satisfaction that they enjoyed prior to the deprivation event. An important part of a deprivation claim is the identification and quantification of the amount of economic damages that the aggrieved party has suffered.
