IL Supreme Court Recognizes Intrusion Upon Seclusion Tort

In Lawlor v. North American Corporation of Illinois, (pdf) Case No. 112530 (Oct. 18, 2012), the Illinois Supreme Court recognized the tort of intrusion upon seclusion.  As commentators have noted, this was not surprising as the Illinois appellate courts uniformly have recognized this tort, but the Illinois Supreme Court has now set out the elements of the tort.   Littler Mendelson has a briefing on the case.
