Dear XXXXXty - Successfully suing a newspaper is usually very difficult unless you can show that they printed false facts. I'm not sure from your question what the exact "invasion" of your privacy was but if they simply reported information that was available then it is unlikely you would have a valid lawsuit. Newspapers are protected by the First Amendment and very rarely lose a suit for anything other than libel.
Without knowing your facts I really cannot comment further. You certainly have a right to sue anyone at anytime but the key is whether you have a reasonable chance of success.
