Parnoff v. Aquarian Water Co. of Connecticut

Plaintiff filed, amongst others, actions for negligent and intentional infliction of emotional distress against the defendant water company and its employees, after two employees accused him of stealing water from a hydrant they were servicing. Court held: (1) that the negligent infliction of emotional distress claims were time barred as the action was brought more than two years from the date the injury was discovered; and (2) that the intentional infliction of emotional distress claims fail because accusing one of stealing water “rudely” and “aggressively” is not extreme and outrageous.
