A cause of action is properly alleged against defendants for their interference with contract when the following elements are set forth:
The Second Department held, in Miller v. Theodore-Tassy, 92 AD3d 650 , that:
To prevail on a cause of action alleging tortious interference with contract, a plaintiff must establish “the existence of a valid contract between the plaintiff and a third party, defendant’s knowledge of that contract, defendant’s intentional procurement of the third-party’s breach of the contract without justification, actual breach of the contract, and damages resulting therefrom” citing Lama Holding Co. v. Smith Barney, 88 NY2d 413, 424.
