Lawyer Has Tortious Interference Claim Against Former Client

Really interesting case from Indiana at the intersection of torts and professional responsibility -

A lawyer was a partner in a firm.   Firm client wanted to buy land that the partner owned.  Partner refused but entered into a land use agreement with the firm client.   There were disagreements over the land use contract.  Firm client met with firm partners and threatened to take its business elsewhere unless the dispute was resolved with the partner.   The firm  removed the partner from the firm....

The partner subsequently filed a tortious interference agasint the firm client, and the Indiana Court of Appeals has just held that the partner can proceed.   BNA has a full report on the case.
