Tortious Interference with an Advantageous Business Relationship
From Florida Legal Wiki
To sufficiently state a claim under tortious interference with an advantageous business relationship, the claimant must plead four elements:
- the existence of a business relationship, not necessarily evidenced by an enforceable contract, under which plaintiff has legal rights;
- knowledge of the relationship on the part of the defendant;
- an intentional and unjustified interference with that relationship by the defendant; and
- damage to the plaintiff as a result of the interference.
