Invasion of Privacy

Is a tort based in common law allowing an aggrieved party to bring a lawsuit against an individual who unlawfully intrudes into his or her private affairs, discloses his or her private information, publicizes him or her in a false light, or appropriates his or her name for personal gain.

An invasion of privacy is traumatic and shocking. It can make you feel vulnerable and powerless.

Types of Invasion of Privacy Cases: Privacy cases generally involve intentional privacy invasions that are substantial and would be considered highly offensive to a reasonable person.

In Georgia, there are four types of invasion of privacy claims:

  • Intrusion on Seclusion occurs when someone physically invades your private space either physically or with a video camera or other recording device.
  • Public Disclosure of Private Facts occurs when someone releases your personal information, such as medical or financial records, without authorization and the disclosure is outrageous to a public sense of decency.
  • False Light occurs when someone negatively affects your reputation by making false statements or claims about you, or by disclosing facts in such a way as to misrepresent you.
  • Misappropriation of Name or Likeness occurs when someone uses your picture, image, voice, or name without your permission and for a profit.

When someone invades your privacy, they violate your fundamental rights of personal security and personal liberty. Invasion of privacy claims are complex.
