Arizona

Arizona recognizes the four privacy torts.

Intrusion: An undercover television news crew gained access to a medical laboratory by posing as potential clients and secretly videotaping meetings with a doctor. The doctor’s intrusion claim failed because he had no reasonable expectation of privacy in an office open to the public, and he could not reasonably expect to keep conversations with strangers private. Further, the news crew did not act in a highly offensive manner, because they put no one in danger, did not invade anyone’s home, and were pursuing a story on public health.
