By that date, there was depression in the share market and the value of the share had gone down to Rs. 80 only. B did not take delivery of the shares on 15th February, 2008. A retained the shares and ultimately sold them in September, 2008 at Rs. 170 per share. A files a suit against B for the recovery of Rs. 1,80,000 as damages. B contends that as A did not suffer any losses, he was not entitled to damages as claimed by the plaintiff. Decide the case.
