This article is a Quick Answer Page on Civil Conspiracy, provided by Andrew Douglas, P.A.

What is Civil Conspiracy in Florida?
How do I prove a Civil Conspiracy claim in Florida?
What are the elements of a claim for Civil Conspiracy in Florida?

It is fundamental that the allegations of a declaration for civil conspiracy must charge a combination of two or more persons by concerted action to accomplish an unlawful purpose or to accomplish a lawful purpose by unlawful means or it must allege that the confederates committed acts unlawfully, willfully, and maliciously that resulted in injury to the plaintiff.
Carson in his work on Common Law Pleading, page 174, lists the essentials of such a declaration to be:
1. Conspiracy between two or more persons to do an unlawful act or to do a lawful act by unlawful means,
2. the doing of some overt act in pursuance of the conspiracy, and
3. damage to the plaintiff as a result of the acts done in furtherance of the conspiracy.
