There are four generally recognized invasion of privacy claims:
• Appropriation, for the defendant's benefit or advantage, of the plaintiff's name or likeness;
• Public disclosure of private facts;
• Publicity that places the plaintiff in a false light in the public eye; and
• Intrusion upon the plaintiff's physical and mental solitude or seclusion.
Illinois courts have recognized the first three causes of action, but are split on whether intrusion into the seclusion of another is a valid cause of action (Lovgren v. Citizens First National Bank of Princeton, 534 N.E.2d 987 (Ill. 1989)).
