When is a third party's behavior tortious interference?

Georgia business people most likely already know that competition is the lynchpin of business operations in the United States. Competition provides better products, services and prices to consumers. However, it is possible for someone to go too far when competing with another company. If so, that party could be guilty of tortious interference.

Why many banks don't provide funding for business formation

Recent estimates indicate that only around 19 percent of small businesses across the country -- including here in Georgia -- receive a loan from a big bank. That percentage increases to nearly 50 percent if the bank is small because smaller lenders tend to take advantage of the Small Business Administration's loan guarantee program. According to one source, just a handful of reasons explain why large banks are hesitant to lend when it comes to small business formation.

Contract dispute results in not 1, but 2 lawsuits

Georgia music fans may already know that any time an entertainer agrees to a live performance in a particular venue, a contract is ordinarily drawn up to solidify the date and time, place and compensation for the appearance. When one party breaches that contract for any reason, the resulting contract dispute may end up in court. For instance, a popular country music duo agreed to perform at an out-of-state festival for $450,000.

Order issued in wage and hour complaint against LinkedIn

7-Eleven embroiled in franchise dispute re discrimination

At last count, there were over 53,500 of the company's stores worldwide. Here in the United States, about 6,200 of 7,800 stores are part of 7-Eleven's franchise program.
