Din dicționarul Bouvier's Law Dictionary, Revised 6th Ed (1856) :

  REMOTE. At a distance; afar off, not immediate. A remote cause is not in 
  general sufficient to charge a man with the commission of a crime, nor with 
  being the author of a tort. 
       2. When a man suffers an injury in consequence of the violation of a 
  contract, he is in general entitled to damages for the violation of such 
  contract, but not for remote consequences, unconnected with the contract, to 
  which he may be subjected; as, for example, if the maker of a promissory 
  note should not pay it at maturity; the holder will be entitled to damages 
  arising from the breach of the contract, namely, the principal and interest; 
  but should the holder, in consequence of the non-payment of such note, be 
  compelled to stop payment, and lose his credit and his business, the maker 
  will not be responsible for such losses, on account of the great remoteness 
  of the cause; so if an agent who is bound to account should neglect to do 
  so, and a similar failure should take place, the agent would not be 
  responsible for the damages thus caused. 1 Brock. Cir. C. R. 103; see 3 Pet. 
  69, 84, 89; 5 Mason's R. 161; 3 Wheat. 560; 1 Story, R. 157; 3 Sumn. R. 27, 
  270; 2 Sm. & Marsh. 340; 7 Hill, 61. Vide Cause.
