    Date:
    30 September 2005

    In Mainstream Properties Ltd v Young and others, the Court of Appeal holds, that following Douglas v Hello, only the intention to cause economic harm to the claimant as an end in itself, or the intention to cause economic harm to the claimant because it is a necessary means of achieving some ulterior motive, will suffice to prove the tort of interference with contractual relations.
