If you are currently feeling the withdrawals from the NFL off-season, don’t fret. Interference is more than just the most frustrating call in football It can also be a claim in court. The standard for Tortious Interference is excerpted below from one of my briefs.
To prevail on a claim for tortious interference with business relations in New York, a party must prove that it had a business relationship with an identified third party; that the defendant knew of that relationship and intentionally interfered with it; that the defendant acted solely out of malice or used improper or illegal means that amounted to a crime or independent tort; and that the defendant’s interference caused injury to the relationship with the third party. Amaranth LLC v. J.P. Morgan Chase & Co., 71 A.D.3d 40, 47 (1st Dept. 2009).
