Report: Women file lawsuit against Sears over alleged videotaping incidents at Calif. store

Former maintenance worker allegedly installed cameras in dressing rooms and restrooms


According to a story published last week by ABC News, a group of 25 women have filed a lawsuit against Sears and a former maintenance worker, who allegedly hid cameras in dressing rooms and restrooms at a store in North Hollywood, Calif., between 2009 and April of this year.

The suspect in the case, a former maintenance employee who worked at Sears for seven years, was arrested on April 12, but has yet to be formally charged by the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office, according to the report.

The group suing the company is comprised of 16 employees and nine store customers. They claim the retailer knew or should have known that the cameras had been installed and are seeking unspecified compensatory and punitive damages in the case.
