In the Mauritian case of Cascadelle Distribution et Cie Ltée v. Nestlé Products (Mauritius) Ltd 2015 SCJ 120 - 15 April 2015, it was decided that a plaintiff who is party to an agreement can establish, on a balance of probability, that the termination of an agreement by the other party was abusive and made in bad faith. Having regard to all the circumstances of the case, claims for damages for 'abus de droit' and 'faute' would not be in breach of principle of 'non-cumul de la responsabilité contractuelle et délictuelle' (that is, a claim cannot be brought both in contract and in tort).
