What Is a Business Tort?
A tort is an action or omission that harms or injures another person. Business torts are wrongful acts against business entities that are directly responsible for the loss of profits, investors, and/or public support. The injury may be a violation of contracts or fraud, while harm could be a misrepresentation that permanently damages a business' reputation and future opportunities.
Common Business Tort Cases
In simplest terms, business torts are unlawful acts that prevent a company from operating normally. There are different kinds of torts, each of which might warrant a different approach to litigation depending on the circumstances.
Below are some of the most common business tort cases:
- Restraint of Trade: This falls under common law doctrine, but it can become a tort if the tortious act caused loss on a large scale and prevented the business from operating at standard capacity.
- Tortious Interference: When one party knowingly interferes with a business contract or an established expectation, it may qualify as tortious interference. In this case, the definitions of injury and harm are somewhat fluid and may only be considered tortious in specific contexts.
- Fraudulent Misrepresentation: If one party acts in bad faith or misrepresents their intentions causing significant financial loss to the other party, they may be guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation.
- Theft of Trade Secrets: Obtaining trade secrets and using them for competitive advantage is unlawful and may result in a civil claim.
Each of these tort cases involves one party acting in bad faith to the detriment of the other. When one party acts dishonestly or with fraudulent intent, they act in bad faith. While there are lawful reasons why trade is prohibited, or someone interferes with a contract, intent can shift the case into unlawful territory.
Building a Business Tort Case
Because the legal definition of wrongdoing is fluid with many tort cases, calculating losses and building a case can be difficult. One of the most important elements in a tort case is estimating loss. Damages must be calculable with reasonable certainty, meaning they must equate to the loss. The judge will base their opinion on the loss estimation to calculate the damages.
If the offending party continues to act in bad faith despite the claim against them, the court may issue an injunction to stop further harm. Injunctions are uncommon but can occur in some cases.
