(redirected from Business torts)

economic torts

a convenient nomenclature to bring together a number of torts or delicts with an independent line of authority that regulate economic activity. Always included are INTIMIDATION, INDUCING BREACH OF CONTRACT and CONSPIRACY. PASSING OFF and MALICIOUS FALSEHOOD are sometimes considered, and some writers have attempted to rationalize the three core categories into a single tort of wrongful interference in trade or business.
