BAILEY TOOL & MANUFACTURING CO. v. FORREST BUTLER ET AL. (Tenn. Ct. App. May 24, 2010)
This is a dispute between two companies that supply parts in the automotive industry. Company A claims that Company B tortiously interfered with its contract and with its business relationships. The trial court granted summary judgment on the grounds that there was no genuine issue of material fact as to causation and that Company B conclusively established the affirmative defense of justification. We affirm the decision of the trial court because Company B negated the element of causation.
