Routt County District Court Colorado

Order on Summary Judgment Dismissing Tortious Interference with Contract Claim


In this real estate contract dispute I represented a party defending a tortious interference of contract claim. We successfully argued that under Colorado law the claim had no basis and should be dismissed on summary judgment. Bringing a claim of tortious interference with contract in Colorado requires a showing that the defendant's conduct was intentional and improper. We were able to demonstrate to the court that my client's conduct in question involving contract negotiations could not be shown as "improper" and and the trial court agreed.
