Highlight

An unjust enrichment claim is fully reviewable on appeal, and the essential element in recovering under the theory is the receipt of a benefit by the defendant from the plaintiff which would be inequitable to retain without paying for its value.
A court's findings of fact supporting its unjust enrichment determination are subject to the clearly erroneous standard of review.
