Tina Sherman sues McDonalds over leaked private photos
Tina Sherman and husband Phillip Sherman sues McDonalds for $3 Million because of unauthorized circulation of private pictures of Tina Sherman in the internet after Phillip Sherman, Tina Sherman’s husband left his cellphone at one of the McDonald branches in Arkansas.
The staff of McDonald assured Mr Sherman that the phone will be kept secured until he gets it. But the contrary happened. Photos of Tina Sherman have circulated the internet. The racy photos of Tina Sherman from the phone were then uploaded to a website that published her name, address, and telephone number along with all the private pictures.
Tina Sherman says she began receiving offensive calls and text messages about the pictures from her husband’s mobile phone after he left it at the McDonald’s.
The suit names McDonald’s Corp., Matthews Management Co. and a manager, Aaron Brummley. Employees of the restaurant had allegedly promised to secure the cell phone, turn it off and safeguard it until Phillip Sherman could retrieve it.
The suit seeks no less than $1 million for outrage; no less than $1 million for public disclosure of private facts; and, no less than $1 million for casting the Shermans in a false light. [via nwaonline]
