No. I.1.4 - Abuse of rights

A party may not exercise a right merely to damage the other party or to achieve a result which is disproportionate to the result intended by the legal principle out of which the right arises. 

The Principle provides a classical example of a behavior which is contrary to the general Principle of good faith and fair dealing.
