The court determines an appropriate amount of compensation for the plaintiff by using its discretionary power and taking into account the specifics of the case as well as those of the plaintiff's situation. In addition, it said that in the event that a request for material compensation is made, it is proven that the injured party has suffered substantial damage as a result of the violation of a financial interest held by them; this damage takes into account both the loss that they have sustained and the gain that they have forfeited. It also includes compensation for the loss of opportunity if there are reasonable reasons for it, and it is required that it be a natural result of the harmful act. Because of this, it is correct to say that had it not been for the error, none of these damages would have occurred, and that would not have happened, and the plaintiff did not submit anything to the court that proved that there were material damages to him. Due to the fact that the defendant made a mistake, the court was unable to locate in the documents a foundation for the defendant's current request. Without such a foundation, the court was unable to calculate the monetary value of the defendant's losses and damages. He also did not indicate the amount of wages he lost and the serious damages he incurred as a result of this act, and the court decided to compel the defendant to pay the plaintiff 10,000 dirhams, while also compelling the plaintiff to pay the fees and expenditures associated with the case.
