491. Unliquidated damages.

491.     Unliquidated damages.

A claim for unliquidated damages is a provable debt1, whether the liability is one to which the bankrupt is subject at the commencement of the bankruptcy2 or one to which he may become subject after the commencement of the bankruptcy by reason of any obligation incurred before the commencement of the bankruptcy3.

In determining whether any liability in tort is a bankruptcy debt, the bankrupt is deemed to become subject to that liability by reason of an obligation incurred at the time when the cause of action accrued4.
