McDonalds sued over nude photograph sharing: Tina Sherman not lovin it
McDonalds is facing a lawsuit after employees in a Fayetteville, Arkansas store stole nude photos from a lost cell phone and posted them to the internet.
Phillip and Tina Sherman say Phillip left his cell phone at the McDonald’s July 5. Phillip rang the store to be told that the phone had been found, and had been secured for his collection. What employees shortly discovered though was that Tina Sherman had been sending nude photographs of herself to her husband, and this is where the story takes a turn into legal terrority.
Shortly after confirming the store had the phone, Tina Sherman began receiving offensive calls and text messages about the pictures, then learned her pictures had been posted online along with her name, address and phone number. According to NWAOnline, the web site described how McDonald’s employees retrieved the pictures from a phone left at the restaurant.
Phillip and Tina Sherman are seeking more than $3 million in damages. McDonald’s has so far refused to comment on the story. I guess the Sherman’s weren’t lovin it.
