scope of work, the number of days to finish the project and the

is willing to give back the same provided that you hand over
new equipment of the same kind and quality as those
already delivered at Oakridge and pay the total amount of
damages it has incurred due to your breach of contract. My
client has already spent so much for the purchase, delivery,
storage, etc., of all the equipment needed for the project. It
cannot be overemphasized that the down payment is even
insufficient to cover all the expenses insurred by, and
caused to my client.”
The copy of the letter is hereto attached and marked as
Annex “____”;

21. That apparently the conditions set by the defendant only show that
he had no intention to return the down payment; he even unlawfully
demanded the additional 40% of the contract price without

hire the services of counsel in the amount of P100,000.00 as
6

acceptance fee and it has agreed to pay the appearance fee of P2,000
per court appearance;

25. That in order to deter the defendant from doing the same things to
others, he should be held liable to pay exemplary damages in the
amount of P100,000.00;

26. That furthermore the plaintiff shall incur litigation expenses in the
amount of P50, 000.00, more or less;
