A Hagerstown woman is suing The Herald-Mail Co., alleging the newspaper revealed private information about her and her child in a Mother's Day story the newspaper published last year.
The woman accuses the newspaper of publishing the story without her consent, according to the lawsuit filed this month in Washington County Circuit Court.
The lawsuit alleges that the story contained false information.
The woman accuses the newspaper of defamation, invasion of privacy and injurious falsehood, the suit says.
The story, published May 12, 1996, implied that the woman was incapable of taking care of her child, incompetent and immoral, the suit alleges.
