You are a manufacturer who had a very profitable contract with a large retail chain. One of your competitors learned of this contract and contacted the retail chain to tell them that your products were poorly manufactured and that they should stop buying from you and buy everything from your competitor. The retail chain then breaches by canceling your contract and starts buying from your competitor. Your products were not poorly manufactured.

You can sue both the competitor and the retail chain for losses you suffered, one for a tort and one for breach of contract, but you are not allowed to recover twice for the same harm.

What is the tort you can sue for and who is the defendant?

Who do you sue for the breach of contract claim?

What damages would be recoverable from each defendant so that it would not be recovering the same damages twice? Fully explain your answer.
