Public Disclosure of Private Facts: Jane Doe 464533 v ND

Speaker: Chris Madill, Stewart McKelvey
Chair:  Alex Sharpe, Lerners LLP

 

The frequency and severity of electronic privacy breaches continue to rise and the common law is being called upon to protect victims’ rights.

In Jane Doe 464533 v ND (2016 ONSC 541), the plaintiff’s ex-boyfriend uploaded an intimate video of her to the internet without her knowledge or consent. The plaintiff sued the ex-boyfriend. She plead (amongst other causes of action) breach of privacy.

Justice Stinson cited the seminal decision from the Court of Appeal, Jones v Tsige (2012 ONCA 32) and its reliance upon the four privacy torts set out in the American Restatement (Second) of Torts. His Honour then held that the tort of public disclosure of private facts was most applicable to the case at bar and that the cause of action was made out on the facts.   

Key topics to be discussed during this audioconference include:

  • How the analysis behind Jones v Tsige and Jane Doe 464533 v ND will guide the development of common law privacy torts
  • The types and quantum of damages available and how the Supreme Court of British Columbia considered and restricted the scope of Jane Doe 464533 v ND
  • Common issues posed by privacy torts (e.g. is there coverage under traditional insurance policies?)

There will be an opportunity for questions at the end of the audioconference. If you wish to submit a question ahead of time email it to maryellen@cdlawyers.org
