Where petitioner sought the dismissal of claims against him for assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligent infliction of emotional distress, the assault and battery claims were time barred, but the emotional distress claims properly alleged claims independent from traditional common law actions, so the preliminary writ is made permanent in part and quashed in part.
