Defendant, a department store, signed plaintiff's name without his knowledge or consent to a telegram which it caused to be sent to the governor of Oregon. The telegram urged the veto of a bill which, had it become law, would have prevented defendant from continuing the practice of optometry. Plaintiff brought suit to recover damages for the invasion of his right of privacy. Held, on appeal from the lower court's judgment sustaining defendant's demurrer, that the complaint stated a cause of action. Hinish v. Meier & Frank Co., (Ore. I94I) I I3 P. (2d) 438.
