Woman sues Hilton hotel after nude shower video uploaded on porn sites

Chicago- A Chicago woman is suing Hilton Worldwide for $100 million saying that she was filmed naked in the shower by a hidden camera while a hotel guest — in footage uploaded with her name onto multiple porn sites.

The case has become publicized after the woman was a guest at Hampton Inn and Suites hotel in Albany, the capital of New York state, in July 2015 while taking a bar exam after graduating from law school.

The plaintiff who has remained anonymous, has sued the hotel giant for negligence citing “severe and permanent psychological injuries,” “severe mental anguish, emotional distress and other damages” such as medical expenses and loss of earnings.

She was recorded fully nude while taking a shower by a hidden camera according to the 19 page lawsuit.  The plaintiff said she had no idea she was recorded until September 2018, when she received an email saying “this is you right?”, with a link to a porn site publishing with her full name.

The person who sent her the email then would send her numerous emails threatening her, with information of where she went to university and where she worked.

“We take the safety and wellbeing of our guests incredibly seriously, and find the details included in the civil filing distressing,” said a spokesperson for Hilton, the parent company of Hampton Inn.

“We commit to supporting the independent ownership and management of the property as they investigate, respond and cooperate with any law enforcement investigations,” the statement added.

Spokesperson for the Hampton Inn that is in question said, “shocked and stunned to learn of the allegations” late Monday, saying that no recording devices “of any kind” had been discovered at the property.

“The safety and security of our guests is our highest priority, and we emphatically do not condone any form of this type of invasion of privacy,” the property said in a statement.

“Recently, the hotel underwent a complete renovation. During that process, no recording devices of any kind were uncovered,” it added, promising to work with authorities to find and hold accountable the perpetrator.
