Free market competition has its limits; one is the bar on intentional interference with contractual relations. The line between tough competition and tortious behavior is not bright. The court of appeals clarified that line, sort of, by holding that an interference claim may lie even in the absence of an actual breach or impossibility of performance of a contract, depending upon the nature of the conduct of the alleged tortfeasor. This case involved the machinations of former employees to take the largest client of their prior employer by hiring away all the other employees. Relying on the Restatement of Torts, and interpreting a prior Supreme Court case as setting forth only some of the ways in which an interference claim could be proved, the court of appeals concluded that in this case, the plaintiff’s proof sufficiently showed defendant’s wrongful conduct caused interference.
