A contracted to build a dwelling for B, a negro. C, learning that A was building the structure for B, called on B and gave B to understand that the neighborhood would not permit B to use the building after completion. There were no direct threats, nor was there any violence, nor was B requested to cancel the contract. A sues C for inducing the breach which follows C's conversation with B. Held, A was entitled to damages even though C bore no malice toward A and did not intend to cause damage to A. Carson v. Stephens (La. 1930) 129 So, 381.
