Hello, and thank you for your question. I am your Expert and I will provide the answer you require.
1. The short answer is "No" you cannot sue someone for filming you without your consent with their smartphone. However, if they take your image and use it for commercial purposes, such as posting it on Social Media or using your image in an advertisement, then you can sue for loss of your "image rights". However, if they don´t publish it for gain or personal benefit, then you cannot sue someone for filming you with their mobile phone.
2. If you require any clarification arising from the answer or if there is some additional issue arising from your question, I will be happy to help further.
3. Is there any further query, you have in relation to the answer? Is there any issue arising from it?
