Authoring Judge: Judge Henry F. Todd
Trial Court Judge: Judge Walter C. Kurtz

Two former Salvation Army officers, a husband and wife who had been demoted and discharged, sued their superior officers and The Salvation Army itself for invasion of privacy, intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligent infliction of emotional distress, and outrageous conduct. The Circuit Court of Davidson County dismissed the complaint for failure to state a claim upon which relief can be granted. We affirm, and hold, in addition, that the defendants’ actions were protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.
