Invasion of Privacy
Neil M. Levy; Michael M. Golden; Leonard Sacks
In addition, the chapter discusses other invasion of privacy theories of recovery, including those based on the California Constitution, the Information Practices Act of 1977, the Insurance Information and Privacy Protection Act, the Consumer Credit Reporting Agencies Act, the Investigative Consumer Reporting Agencies Act, and the Invasion of Privacy Act. The chapter then sets forth defenses common to privacy actions, with a focus on defenses arising under the First Amendment. The chapter also reviews defenses based on truth, newsworthiness, plaintiff's status as a public official or public figure, the newsgathering privilege, the Uniform Single Publication Act, and statute of limitations. Finally, the chapter describes who may bring an action for invasion of privacy and considers what damages are recoverable in privacy actions.
California Torts (Matthew Bender) provides in-depth coverage of virtually all recognized theories of tort liability under California law, including related defenses and immunities. In addition to its substantial focus on California personal injury law, the treatise also covers professional liability and a variety of business tort causes of action, such as unfair competition, intentional or negligent interference with business or contractual relationships, unjust dismissal, and "bad faith" actions. It contains detailed information to help attorneys prepare during every stage of case development, from pretrial to verdict to post trial.
