RELIANCE

A party claiming to have been damaged by [a false representation] [a promise made without an intent to perform] [false information] must have relied upon the [representation] [promise] [information]; that is, the [representation] [promise] [information] must have been a [proximate] [legal] cause of the party’s action or failure to act.

The [representation] [promise] [information] need not be the sole [proximate] [legal] cause if it appears that reliance upon it substantially influenced the party’s action or failure to act, even though other influences operated as well.

Reliance may be shown by direct evidence or may be inferred from the circumstances.
