Over the years, our firm has handled a number of cases where one business had been caught trying to do damage to a competitor, resulting in losses and damages to the victimized company. Fortunately, there is a cause of action in Alabama for the intentional interference with business relations. However, we have found that this type case is not always easy to win. But, with the right set of facts, these cases can be won. To prove such a case, the following criteria must exist:
• a contract or business relation;
• the Defendant’s knowledge of the contract or business relation;
• intentional interference by the Defendant with the contract or business relation;
• the absence of justification for the Defendant’s interference; and
• damages as a direct consequence of the interference.
To prove a case under Alabama law on the subject doesn’t require fraud, force or coercion. If you need additional information on this subject, contact Dana Taunton at 800-898-2034.
