Supreme Court Will Review Nostrame v. Santiago

In Nostrame v. Santiago, 420 N.J. Super. 427 (App. Div. 2011), discussed here, the Appellate Division held that an attorney whose client replaced him with another attorney could not sue the new attorney for tortious interference.  The Supreme Court has granted review of that ruling.  As posed by the Supreme Court Clerk’s Office, the question presented is “May this attorney who was terminated by his client maintain an action against the client’s new attorney for tortious interference with contract under the circumstances?”
