(3) The defendant took actions intended to induce a breach or disruption of the contract;

(4) There was no legal justification for the defendant's action, and;

(5) Damages resulted.

  • Known of the existence of a contract, and;
  • intentionally acted to disrupt the contract;
  • The plaintiff must also show that the defendant's action(s) actually caused the breach to occur
