Supreme Court of Oregon
818 P.2d 930 (Or. 1991)
Hamid Madani (plaintiff) was employed as a salesperson by Kendall Ford, Inc. (defendant), and supervised by Dan David (defendant). One day, David instructed Madani to pull down his pants in a public area. Madani refused to do so and was terminated from his employment as a result. Madani sued the defendants for intentional infliction of severe emotional distress, alleging that the defendants’ wrongful termination of his employment had caused Madani mental pain and suffering. The defendants moved to dismiss for failure to state a claim. The trial court dismissed the claim. The court of appeals reversed. The defendants appealed.
