WOMAN SUES HILTON FOR $100M OVER NUDE VIDEO
AChicago woman is suing Hilton Worldwide for $100 million saying that she was ilmed naked in the shower by a hidden camera while a hotel guest -- in footage uploaded with her name onto multiple porn sites. The unnamed plainti sued the hotel giant for negligence citing “severe and permanent psychological injuries,” “severe mental anguish, emotional distress and other damages” such as medical expenses and loss of earnings. The woman was a guest at a Hampton Inn and Suites hotel in Albany, in July 2015 while taking a bar exam after graduating from law school. She was recorded, fully nude, while taking a shower by a hidden video camera. But she was blissfully ignorant until September 2018 when she received an email saying “this is you right?” with a link to the video on a porn site published with her full name. The same person, claiming “I’m a perv,” then sent multiple threatening emails, professing to know where she went to university and where she worked.
