Victims file mass torts claim against voyeur

The legal system allows more than one plaintiff to join in a single action called a class action or mass tort lawsuit. When many people in Tennessee think of mass torts cases, they likely think of consumers or employees suing large companies for unfair treatment since many such cases receive a lot of press. However, that is not always the case, and one lawsuit in another state involves numerous people seeking restitution from a single person.

The man in question recently pleaded guilty to federal crimes that involved child exploitation and pornography. These charges stem from allegations that the man placed video cameras in numerous restrooms in the area. He was able to do this apparently without suspicion because he worked as a custodian for a commercial janitorial company. Among his employer's clients were a car dealership, a TV news station and a children's dance studio.

The man reportedly admitted that while cleaning at these locations, he installed cameras in the bathroom stalls and changing areas and left them there for extended periods of time, more than a year in some cases. So far, about 300 people have joined in a lawsuit against the man. He was sentenced to 140 years in federal prison after entering his guilty plea.

It is not always easy for people who are wronged to obtain the resolution they feel they deserve. When numerous victims attempt to seek justice individually, they may be disappointed and frustrated at the process. By using mass torts claims, multiple victims can attempt to seek restitution from a single party with the assistance of an experienced Tennessee attorney.
