wrongful act legal definition
Any act that will damage the rights of another, unless it is done in the exercise of another equal or superior right. For that reason, the scope of wrongful acts is not limited to illegal acts, but includes acts that are immoral, anti social, or liable to result in a civil suit.
For example anything that is a tort is a wrong, or wrongful act. Tort is derived from the Old French word for injury or wrong.
Anyway, at this point we clearly are arguing definitions, which as I said before may be different where you are than where I am.
We can all agree that it is 'wrong' (in the normal meaning of the word) to intentionally break your word, which is what violating a contract is.
