Nearly three dozen men and women filed a federal class-action lawsuit claiming authorities violated their right to privacy by videotaping them in January at the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter, Fla.
“It is horrific when you think about the scenario,” said Joseph Tacopina, a New York attorney who filed the suit on Monday. “It is akin to going to a bathroom.”
The court papers name the Palm Beach County State Attorney Dave Aronberg, the Jupiter Police Department and the lead detective as defendants. It accuses Jupiter cops of unlawfully obtaining warrants to install the secret cameras.
The 31 John and Jane Does want all the video recordings blocked from public release and destroyed — and are asking for unspecified monetary and punitive damages. None of them were charged with a crime.
