No False Light Tort

The Florida Supreme Court declined to recognize the tort of "false light invasion of privacy" in a lawsuit brought against Jews for Jesus by a plaintiff who had sued based on the allegedly false assertion (made in a newsletter by her son, who was a believer) that she was a convert to their beliefs. The question at issue had been certified to the court, which analyzed the issue under the header "To Recognize or Not to Recognize - That is the Certified Question."  (Mike Frisch)
