PRINCIPLES: Damage without the violation of a legal right is not actionable in a court of law. If the interference with the rights of another person is not unlawful or unauthorized, but a necessary consequence of the exercise of defendant’s own lawful rights, no action should lie.
FACTS: There was an established school (`ES’) in a particular locality. Subsequently, a new school (‘NS’) was set up in the same locality, which charged lower fees, on account of which people started patronizing the new school. Because of the competition, `ES’ had to reduce its fees. `ES’ filed a case against ‘NS’ saying that ‘NS’ had caused it (`ES’) financial loss and, thus, claimed compensation.
Which of the following derivations is CORRECT?
No compensation could be granted, as reduction in fees is good for the public
`ES’ should be awarded compensation, as opening of school in competition is not good
Since damage is caused to `ES’, therefore, it should be awarded compensation
Since no legal right of `ES’ had been violated, therefore, as such, no compensation could be granted
