I’ve been reading about the former Taco Bell executive who jumped into the back seat of the Uber car and attacked the driver. Now this young man wants to sue the driver of that car for $5 million for taking his picture while committing the assault without his permission of being photographed.
In today’s society, there are cameras everywhere. Fast-food restaurants, streets, shopping malls, gas stations, police and everybody who has a cell phone. I don’t know what kind of attorney would take such a case but “sleazy” comes to mind.
Should a robber come into a service station with the apparent intent of robbing the place, I’m sure there would not be an issue for the courts to use video as evidence – with or without permission of the robber.
