Martin Wishnatsky worked as a paralegal for attorney Peter Crary. While Crary was engaged in a conversation with North Dakota Assistant Attorney General David Huey in Crary's office, Wishnatsky attempted to enter the office. Huey then pushed the door closed in Wishnatsky's face, forcing him back into the hall. Wishnatsky, who suffered no physical injury as a result of Huey's action, sued Huey for battery. In an affidavit filed in opposition to Huey's motion for summary judgment, Wishnatsky stated that he was offended, shocked, and frightened as a result of Huey's action and the "You get out of here" statement Huey allegedly made to Wishnatsky as he (Huey) pushed the door closed. After the trial court granted Huey's motion for summary judgment, Wishnatsky appealed. Was Huey entitled to summary judgment?
