What is intentional interference with contractual relations?

The elements of a cause of action for intentional interference with contractual relations are:

  1. the existence of a valid contract between the plaintiff and a third party;
  2. the defendant’s knowledge of that contract;
  3. the defendant’s intentional acts designed to induce a breach or disruption of the contractual relationship;
  4. actual breach or disruption of the contractual relationship; and
  5. resulting damage.

Redfearn v. Trader Joe’s Co. (2018) 20 Cal.App.5th 989, 997 (citation omitted).

Only “a stranger to a contract” may be liable for interfering with it. Mintz v. Blue Cross of California (2009) 172 Cal.App.4th 1594, 1603.

“[A] cause of action for intentional interference with contract requires an underlying enforceable contract. Where there is no existing, enforceable contract, only a claim for interference with prospective advantage may be pleaded.” PMC, Inc. v. Saban Entertainment, Inc. (1996) 45 Cal.App.4th 579, 601.

“The question is whether a plaintiff must plead and prove that the defendant engaged in wrongful acts with the specific intent of interfering with the plaintiff’s business expectancy. We conclude that specific intent is not a required element of the tort of interference with prospective economic advantage. While a plaintiff may satisfy the intent requirement by pleading specific intent, i.e., that the defendant desired to interfere with the plaintiff’s prospective economic advantage, a plaintiff may alternately plead that the defendant knew that the interference was certain or substantially certain to occur as a result of its action.” Korea Supply Co. v. Lockheed Martin Corp. (2003) 29 Cal.4th 1134, 1154.

A contracting party cannot be held to interfere with its own contract. Asahi Kasei Pharma Co. v. Actelion Ltd. (2013) 222 Cal.App.4th 945, 961.

CACI 2201 sets forth the elements of the tort of interference with contract. CACI 2201; see PG&E v. Bear Stearns (1990) 50 Cal.3d 1118, 1126.
