The UVTA does not provide for punitive damages, so the availability of such damages will be determined by decisional law. However, to the extent that punitive damages are allowed (and they frequently are), they will be authorized by § 7(a)(3)(iii) and § 12, below.

OTHER RELIEF § 7(a)(3)(iii)

(3) subject to applicable principles of equity and in accordance with applicable rules of civil procedure:
(iii) any other relief the circumstances may require.


Unless displaced by the provisions of this [Act], the principles of law and equity, including the law merchant and the law relating to principal and agent, estoppel, laches, fraud, misrepresentation, duress, coercion, mistake, insolvency, or other validating or invalidating cause, supplement its provisions.
