A woman has sued over a homemade adult videotape - intended for the private use of herself and her male partner - that was shown to employees of an auto parts store. She said the tape also ended up on a video rental store’s shelves under the title “Banana Man.”
When her partner bragged to co-workers at the auto parts store about the private tape, one of them took the tape from his car and showed it to other employees, the suit said. Later, the tape allegedly was shown to new store workers at an orientation session and offered for rent at the video store where it was copied.
Joanna Norton is seeking $20 million in damages.
