Torts — invasion of privacy — attorney fees

Andrea L. Burns and James D. Barr (“Burns-Barr”) appeal from an order denying their motion for attorney fees pursuant to Wis. Stat. § 995.50(6) (2009-10). Burns-Barr contends that Karen and Barry Poston (“the Postons”) initiated a lawsuit pursuant to Wis. Stat. § 995.50(2), the invasion of privacy statute, either in bad faith or for the purpose of harassing Burns-Barr, entitling Burns-Barr to attorney fees under § 995.50(6). We affirm the circuit court. Not recommended for publication in the official reports.
