Fraud cases often come up in a business context because not only did somebody fail to fulfill their end of the bargain (that is, to break the contract) they also did it in a underhanded way.in order to prove fraud you have to prove that not only did the offending party not do what they said they would do but that they made a false representation knowing that they were never going to fulfill it.
While not falling under the fraud heading, there are other causes of action that can arise in a business setting where a person does not fulfill the obligations that they said they would. For instance, a business can sue for interference with their contractual relationships. Or, a business might be harmed by false representations made by another party (also known as false light representations). These cases arise out of a number of settings, but usually are the fallout of the business deal gone wrong.

The law was repealed in 2002. I don’t know which is weirder – the fact that we needed a law like that, or the fact that we now repealed the law…
I suppose the new registration law is intended to protect livery providers and taxi drivers from competition. Will it do any good in the long run? Maybe I should ask it this way: will anti-competitive laws ever do our economy any good in the long run?
