Beans Group Ltd v Myunidays Ltd

Tort – Cause of action. The claim of the claimant company (SB) succeeded in part, in proceedings concerning allegations that the defendant company (M) had tortiously induced or procured breaches of SB's contracts with a third party. The claim that any of the contracts had been entered into tortiously in the first place, as far as M was concerned, would be rejected. However, the Commercial Court held that M had committed the tort of inducement subsequently, when it had been put on notice of the SB contracts by direct communications from SB.
