The elements of the two separate but related torts of intentional interference with contractual relations (contract interference) and intentional interference with prospective economic advantage (business interference) are substantially the same, but a plaintiff alleging business interference must also show that the defendant’s action was wrongful by some measure beyond the fact of the interference itself.  This case concerned a dismissal by demurrer of the two causes of action in a case where a third party influenced plaintiff’s employer to terminate him.
