This suit involves an attempt by Electronic Payments Systems to develop a competing version of a Global Check Services product. Inter alia, EPS challenges the sufficiency of the evidence supporting the jury's finding on the interference with contract claim. Both parties frame the sufficiency issue as whether knowledge of an exclusivity clause was proved. The intent-to-interfere element of the tortious interference with contract claim was proved with sufficient evidence, including evidence of EPS's alleged aggressive push to recruit GCS's agents. The district court's judgment is affirmed. 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, No. 11-20371, 05-28-2013.
