In re Marriage of Tigges
Iowa Supreme Court
758 N.W.2d 824 (Iowa 2008)
Jeffrey Tigges (plaintiff) was married to Cathy Tigges (defendant). During the marriage, Jeffrey placed video recording equipment in their home, including in their bedroom, without Cathy’s knowledge or consent. Cathy discovered the recording equipment when she saw Jeffrey getting a videotape cassette from the recorder. Cathy took the tape and discovered that it recorded her in the bedroom, but the tape did not reveal anything of a graphic or demeaning nature. Jeffrey filed a petition for divorce. Cathy filed a counterclaim in the divorce proceeding, alleging tortious invasion of privacy. The trial court found in favor of Cathy, and the court of appeals affirmed. Jeffrey petitioned the Iowa Supreme Court for review.
