Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress:

"This tort may be broadly defined as the intentional or reckless infliction by extreme and outrageous conduct of severe emotional or mental distress. This claim will be sustained even in the absence of physical harm.

The complained-of activity must be...so outrageous in character, and so extreme in degree, as to go beyond all possible bounds of decency, and to be regarded as atrocious, and utterly in­tolerable in a civilized community. Generally, the case is one in which the recitation of the facts to an average member of the community would arouse his resentment against the actor, and lead him to exclaim, "Outrageous!"  Page 99.
