Judgment following binding arbitration on a claim of tortious interference with a contractual relationship

A Monmouth County sports agent (National Basketball Association (NBA)) brought an action against another sports agent (NBA) and another individual in New Jersey Superior Court, alleging tortious interference with a contractual relationship, tortious interference with a prospective economic advantage and other claims surrounding the termination of the plaintiff by a professional basketball player.
