Hernandez v. Hillsides, Inc., No. S147552

In a tort action alleging intrusion into a protected place, interest, or matter, and violations of the right to privacy, court of appeals judgment reversing summary judgment for defendants is reversed where plaintiffs did not establish that defendants' challenged conduct was highly offensive and constituted an egregious violation of prevailing social norms, as activation of a surveillance system was narrowly tailored in place, time, and scope and was prompted by legitimate business concerns, and plaintiffs were not at risk of being monitored or recorded during regular work hours and were never actually caught on camera or videotape.
