In DaPonte v. Ocean State Job Lot, the Rhode Island Supreme Court ruled that a company president did not violate an employee's privacy by touching her shoulder. During an inspection of a company store, the president expressed displeasure with an incorrect price sticker on merchandise by forcefully attaching the sticker to the shoulder of an employee. Plaintiff sued alleging a violation of her privacy over the president's intrusion into the employee's "personal space." Rejecting the claim, the court held that the president's "public, boorish touching" of plaintiff's shoulder did not support an invasion of privacy claim.
