Indiana recognizes the common law tort for invasion of privacy, which provides that one who invades the right of privacy of another is subject to liability for the resulting harm to the interests of the other person (Doe v. Methodist Hosp., 690 N.E.2d 681 (Ind. 1997)).
The right of privacy is invaded by:
• Unreasonable intrusions on the seclusion of others;
• Appropriating another's name or likeness;
• Giving unreasonable publicity to another's private life; or
• Using publicity that unreasonably places another in a false light before the public.
Indiana recognizes all four of the above common-law privacy claims. See Felsher v. U. of Evansville, 755 N.E.2d 589 (Ind. 2001) (misappropriation); Munsell v. Hambright, 776 N.E.2d 1272 (Ind. Ct. App. 2002) (public disclosure); andBranham v. Celadon Trucking Services, Inc., 744 N.E.2d 514 (Ind. Ct. App. 2001) (intrusion on seclusion, false light).
