(SOLVED) What Is Tortious Interference With An Expectancy?

Although tortious interference with expectancy of inheritance may be a new legal action in Florida it can provide a remedy to a beneficiary wrongfully deprived of their inheritance through the negligent acts of another party. In order to establish a case for Tortious Interference with Expectancy of Inheritance, the potential beneficiary must demonstrate 1) that he or she’s havingaving an expectancy to inherit from the Estate; 2) that a third party intentionally interfered with that expectancy through tortious conduct; 3) that the third party’s wrongful interference caused the beneficiary to lose out on his or her inheritance; and 4) the third party’s wrongful interference caused the beneficiary to suffer damages 😎 [1]
For tortious interference to be a cause for action, the complaint must include the following elements: 1) the existence and (2) the interference with that expectancy by tortious conduct; 2) causation; 3) damages. See, Claveloux, supra; Davison v. Feuerherd, 391 So. 2d 799 (Fla.2d DCA 1980). The following cases are examples of instances where allegations were sufficient to support a motion to dismiss. Allen v. Leybourne (190 So. 2d 825, FLA. 3rd DCA 1966; Davison, supra, and Watts, v. Haun 393 So. 2d 54 (Fla.2nd DCA 1981). You do not need to mention a cause for action in relation to the tort. Nationwide Life Insurance Company v. Perry 2012 U.S. Dist. Lexis 146454 (S. Dist. Fla. 2012) (The court rejected the defendant’s argument that the tortious interference based on fraud must meet the heightened pleading requirements. While fraud evidence could be used in support of the claim, the court concluded that it was not fraud.). [2]
