Total Breach Law and Legal Definition

A total breach is defined as “one that so substantially impairs the value of the contract to the injured party at the time of the breach that it is just in the circumstances to allow him to recover damages based on all his remaining rights to performance.” First Annapolis Bancorp, Inc. v. United States, 2009 U.S. Claims LEXIS 339 (Fed. Cl. Oct. 26, 2009)
