IDAHO BUSINESS TORTS
TYPES OF BUSINESS TORTS
Misrepresentation: This involves intentionally misrepresenting a material fact to others to induce them to purchase a product, loan money, or enter into an agreement. An example would be overstating one’s income when selling a business. A claim may also arise from failing to disclose a material fact, such as a seller concealing construction flaws or environmental issues from a prospective property buyer.
Interference with Contractual Relations: In this case a person knows about a contract between two other persons and intentionally goes about disrupting it. As an example, a contractor may be building a house for a customer. A competitor urges the customer to fire the contractor in the middle of the project for no valid reason.
Interference with Prospective Business Advantage: In this case there is no contract, but a business relationship likely to benefit a party. A third person knowingly goes about breaking up the relationship. For example a plumbing contractor may have a close association with a developer based on considerable good work in the past and expects to do further work for the developer in an upcoming subdivision. Entering the picture, a competitor alienates the developer from the plumber by spreading lies about the plumber.
