An Example of Tortious Interference

Tortious interference with a contract occurs when a person or company who is outside a contract between two other parties forces one of them to breach the contract. This can be either through spreading misinformation, stopping a deal from occurring, or even preventing a contract from being fulfilled through other means.

Tortious interference of a contract occurs when:

  • A contract exists between the plaintiff and someone else
  • The defendant knows the contract exists
  • The defendant’s actions in some way cause one of the parties involved to breach the contract or disrupt their ability to hold up their end of it
  • The actions and breach of contract caused the plaintiff to suffer economic damages

Tortious Interference with a Business Relationship

Interference with a business relationship is similar to interference with a contract, only this tort does not require a contract to actually exist. It can be slightly harder to prove that this actually occurred, however the definition is also extremely broad to encompass as many types of interference as possible. If you suspect that a business relationship may have gone sour as a result of outside meddling form a competitor or someone who would wish to sabotage your business, discuss your case with our attorney and get the help you need with your case!
