A college student alleges that members of Best Buy’s Geek Squad took nude photos off her computer and posted them online.
Nicole March, the 20-year-old art student at University of Alabama, is suing the company for invasion of privacy, reports Kent Faulk at al.com.
March also works at Best Buy.
In May, a coworker told her that he had nude photos of her and “they were circulating” on websites including Pirate Bay, according to the lawsuit.
She told her general manager, who investigated and allegedly asked her to do him “the favour of not asking who the culprit was.”
She filed a police report a week later.
March’s lawsuit says she was embarrassed and humiliated “from now knowing these, private and sensitive photos have been published and made accessible to untold and innumerable persons for improper use and viewing,” Faulk writes.
Best Buy didn’t comment on the suit, citing pending litigation.
