Business Daily (Kenya) - - YOUR MINUTE OF THE DAY -

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.
