This is a blight that often occurs when the weather is humid.  It spreads fast so do something about it immediately!!!  You will want to take a pruning shears and a plastic garbage bag and snip off any branches that contain these yellow leaves.  Immediately place them in the plastic bag.  Be sure the yellow leaves do not come in contact with any healthy parts of the plant!  When finished, burn the bag of blighted leaves!!!  You want to avoid contamination of your healthy plants!  You can also find a spray for this at your local gardening center--look for something for black spot blight.  Also, plants will be less susceptible to this blight if they have plenty of open space around them and receive good air flow.
Tomato plant leaves often turn yellow naturally as a part of the normal aging cycle. I would consider this as a possibility first.
