interceptive subtraction

interceptive subtraction
in the law of restitution, a term applied by some commentators to a taking away from the pursuer, which happens by the defender acquiring value that would otherwise have reached the pursuer. The value subtracted can thus be treated as an unjust enrichment and subject to the law of restitution.
