Nominal Damages
Awarded when the plaintiff proves that the defendant has committed tort even though no actual loss suffered on the fact that there has been a violation of his right. It is also awarded when the damage is shown but its amount is not sufficiently proved.

Contemptuous Damages
Awarded when the court feels that the plaintiff does not have a good claim. Commonly happens when the court feels that morally, the plaintiff deserved what happened to him. The usual practice is that the party who loses pays for the cost.
