A business suing another business must be involved in trade or commerce. The business being sued must be involved in an “unfair method of competition” or must have engaged in actions that were “unfair” or “deceptive.” That business’s actions must have occurred mainly and significantly inside Massachusetts.
To receive money from a business, that business’s actions must have resulted in a loss of money or property. Or, if one business seeks to simply stop another from doing something, that business’s actions “may have the effect of causing” the loss of money or property.
