Constitution. The Louisiana Constitution provides that individuals shall be secure in their person, property, communications, houses, papers, and effects against unreasonable searches, seizures, or invasions of privacy, and no warrants may be issued without probable cause (La. Const. art. I, § 5). The right does not apply to private actors, but only governments (Hayes v. Univ. Health Shreveport, LLC, No. 2021-CC-01601 (La. 2022)).
Common law. Louisiana recognizes all four common law invasion of privacy claims:
• Intrusion upon solitude or seclusion;
• Public disclosure of private facts (e.g., unreasonable publicity given to one's private life);
• False light privacy (e.g., publicity that normally places the other in a false light before the public); and
• Appropriation of one's name or likeness (Jaubert v. Crowley Post-Signal, Inc., 375 So.2d 1386 (La. 1979)).
