In McCord v. HCA Health Services of Tennessee, Inc., 2015 WL 1914634 (Tenn. Ct. App. April 27, 2015), the Court of Appeals reaffirmed that an allegedly defamatory statement may also constitute the basis for a claim of intentional interference with existing and prospective business relationships. Id. at *8. Unfortunately for Dr. McCord, he was unable to prove that the allegedly defamatory statement was false, so his intentional interference claim was dismissed at the summary judgment stage. Id. at *9.
