Interference And Other Torts

A tort is an intentional or negligent act that results in financial, emotional or physical harm to another. The Law Offices of Shelley L. Stangler, P.C., has won monetary damages in claims of tortious interference with economic advantage, by showing how the wrongful act cost our client a job, a contract or other opportunity.

For example, an ex-employer who gives a bad job reference might be sued if you find yourself "blacklisted." Being expelled from school could be grounds, especially if a student loses a scholarship or is denied college entrance or career opportunities as a result. A baseless arrest and prosecution for a crime can disqualify a person for certain jobs or professional licenses; if you were acquitted at trial or charges were dropped only after the damage to your reputation was done, there may be a tort claim. Other examples include defamation, interfering with business contracts, or arbitrary and capricious action relating to zoning, issuance of permits, construction, and contracts with government entities and other governmental actions.
