Sprint Phone Tech Guy Invaded Privacy|By Sending Seminude Pix, Woman Says

LAS VEGAS (CN) - A Sprint PCS worker downloaded seminude pictures from a customer's phone and sent them to her family and co-workers, the woman claims in Clark County Court.

Melissa Montgomery says she went to a Sprint store to have her phone service switched over from her old phone to her new one. That's when she says Kevin McCauley uploaded pictures from her old phone to her new personal online account, including partially nude pictures she "had taken privately for her boyfriend."

About 50 of plaintiff's contacts, including her 12-year-old sister, parents, brother, godmother and co-workers received five of the partially nude pictures in February 2007, she says.

Montgomery says McCauley admitted he gained access to her personal account and sent the pictures to her contacts. She demands punitive damages for privacy invasion, negligence, emotional distress and breach of contract.

She is represented by Eric Taylor with Alverson Taylor.
