Cell phone cameras and minicams in public places have helped law enforcement officers to identify law breakers, such as toll evaders and shoplifters. Anti-terror officials also have used cameras to identify suspicious individuals and criminals. Ordinary people with minicams have filmed tragedies ranging from tsunamis to auto accidents, and happier events such as family celebrations and children’s sporting events. However, when photographers put their minicams to use for deliberate invasion of others’ privacy, the courts provide remedy.
When a husband discovered that his wife had hired a private detective agency to secretly videotape him in the couple’s bedroom, he hired Holly Gayle Gershon to sue the firm for invasion of privacy. The court ruled that the husband had a right to expectation of privacy in the seclusion of the marital bedroom and awarded him significant money damages.
