Interference with Credit Expectancy

Interference with Business Contracts/Expectancy is a well-established tort in Missouri (and most other states). It has, however, developed through case law and can now be applied in several different contexts.
A more common strand of tortious interference is tortious interference with credit expectancy. In order for a plaintiff to succeed on such a claim, the plaintiff must prove that he/she has a (1) valid credit expectancy; that (2) defendant was aware of the credit expectancy; (3) denial of credit induced or caused by the defendant’s intentional interference; (4) no justification for the defendant’s actions; and (5) damages as a result.
