Imperial Ice Company (plaintiff) acquired title to an ice distributing business in a contract with S.L. Coker. The contract contained a non-compete clause, under which Coker agreed not to sell or distribute ice within the territory. Coker later started selling ice in the territory, which was supplied by a company owned by W. Rossier, J.A. Matheson, and Fred Matheson (defendants). Imperial Ice sought an injunction against Rossier and the Mathesons to stop them from inducing Coker to breach the contract, claiming that they induced the breach in order to sell ice to Coker at a profit. The trial court sustained a demurrer to the complaint, and Imperial Ice now appeals.
