TABFG, LLC v. Pfeil

Federal 7th Circuit Court
Civil Court
Tortious Interference
Case Number: 
No. 12-3557
Decision Date: 
March 20, 2014
Federal District: 
N.D. Ill., E. Div.
Dist. Ct. did not err in entering judgment in favor of plaintiff in action alleging that defendant tortiously interfered with contract that plaintiff had with third-party limited liability company, where plaintiff alleged that defendant caused third-party to disburse funds to himself and others in contravention with contract that plaintiff had with third-party. While defendant argued that he was entitled to conditional privilege arising out of said distribution, defendant was not entitled to said privilege where defendant was not manager or director of third-party, and where instant distribution essentially benefited defendant and was made in clear contravention to terms of subject contract.
