Please bear with me if you believe my answer isn’t coming fast enough because I’m also working with other customers too. I apologize for any seemingly late response.



Essentially, there are four types of privacy actions existing in tort litigation separate and apart from the type of privacy at issue under the federal Constitution or article
I, section 23 of the Florida Constitution.

The four types of privacy actions include:

(1) appropriation, involving the unauthorized use of a person’s name or likeness;

(2) intrusion, involving physical or electronic intrusion into one’s private quarters;

(3) public disclosure of private facts, involving the dissemination of truthful private information that a reasonable person would find objectionable; and

(4) false light in the public eye, involving the publication of facts that place a person in a false light even though the facts themselves may not be defamatory.


There isn't a specific statute as concern these torts - they are common law.

Is this admissible to add to a civil complaint in circuit court , is there a common law reference ?

They are permissable to add to a complaint and you don't have to add a common law reference in your complaint.

Florida has long recognized the right to sue in tort for the civil wrong of invasion of privacy. In the relatively infamous case of Cason v. Baskin, 155 Fla. 198, 20 So. 2d 243 (Fla. 1944).

However, if there is a specific situation - then you would need to research that to find case law on the subject (which is beyond the scope of this venue).

And can punitive damages be added to this citation in the complaint ?

Yes, punitive damages are recoverable in an invasion of privacy case potentially - it's a matter of what was done exactly.
