The Business Record had this story re-posted below. This is the kind of case I have previously seen in my practice. I'm familiar with a young professional who did this same thing, but with an adult woman, then showed the tape as half-time entertainment to his buddies. He ended up paying $100,000 to settle the civil case for invasion of privacy.
Think it’s cute, think again, because it can cost you. And when the Internet is used as the publishing mechanism, the damages may be a whole lot higher than $100,000.
Bring me your case and we’ll make an example out of the moron that does this kind of thing.
