Chapter 18

MISCELLANEOUS TORTS

  This chapter covers several torts that have little to do with each other:
  • Invasion of privacy:  The tort of “invasion of privacy” is actually a cluster of four different, but related, torts.
    • Misappropriation of identity:  “Misappropriation of identity” occurs where P’s name or likeness has been used by D for D’s financial benefit, without P’s consent.
    • Intrusion on solitude:  “Intrusion on solitude” occurs where D invades P’s private space in a manner which would be highly offensive to a reasonable person in P’s position.
    • Publicity of private life:  “Publicity of private life” or “public disclosure” occurs where D publicly discloses a non-public detail of P’s private life, where the effect would be highly offensive to a reasonable person in P’s position.
    • False light:  “False light” occurs where D publishes false statements about P which, although not defamatory, would be highly offensive to a reasonable person in P’s position.
