Invasion of Privacy Could Cost You


Yesterday the Ontario Court of Appeal released an interesting decision about whether Ontario law recognizes the right to bring a civil action for damages for the invasion of personal privacy.  In brief:

The plaintiff alleged an intrusion;
Into his most precious seclusion;
It went to the Court;
They made it a tort;
Clearly privacy’s not an illusion.

For a more comprehensive (but less whimsical) commentary, take a look at Christian Paquette’s post on the Court’s decision in Jones v. Tsige, 2012 ONCA 32.
