Ecosure Pest Control Inc. v. Eclipse Marketing Inc., et al., No. 2:09-CV-001108, 2010 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 86614 (D. Utah Aug. 23, 2010)

(plaintiff lacks standing to bring tortious interference with business relations claim against defendant couched in tax violations; parties provide pest control services in same market and plaintiff classifies workers as employees while defendant classifies similar workers as independent contractors; plaintiff claims defendant's classification violates federal and state employment tax laws; defendant's classification allows defendant to avoid payment of employment tax and other taxes which allows them to pay higher wages to workers and gives them a competitive advantage in the market; court notes that neither federal or state tax law provide a private cause of action for their enforcement).
