In Paul v. Davis, 424 U.S. 693, 701-02 (1976), then-Justice William Rehnquist wrote for a divided U.S. Supreme Court that "[d]amage to reputation alone is not actionable under ยง 1983 unless accompanied by injury to "some more tangible interests."

This holding has frequently been distinguished and questioned by lower courts.

In another case, a demoted employee was awarded a quarter of million dollars after Southwestern Bell Yellow Pages pressured customers to sign false statements that hurt the employee's reputation. [1]
