    Tina and Philip Sherman suing McDonald's over nude photos

    HAVE YOU HEARD ABOUT THIS?

    Photobucket


    Tina Sherman and her (probably soon to be ex-) husband, Philip, are suing McDonald's after some of their employees posted nude photos of Tina online.

    The story goes like this: Philip went to an Arkansas McDonald's and left his cell phone behind. The Mickey Dee's employees returned Sherman's cell phone, but they posted the naked pics online first.

    Now Tina and Philip Sherman are suing the local McDonald's franchisee for $3 million!! Wowza!

    Tina Sherman says she received text messages from her husband’s cell phone while the employee at McDonald's were supposed to be keeping it safe. One of the texts evidently read:
    "I have seen your photos, and I like what I see.”

    The Shermans are suing for suffering, embarrassment and the cost of having to move to a new home.

    I guess the McDonald's Corporation must update its policy about posting nude photos of your manager.

    Do you want fries with that? icon_wink.gif
    I cannot believe that the employees were that stupid to text his wife!!
    I don't think McDonald's should be held accountable for this. It is not like they tell their employees to post pics off of cell phones that are left there!! I think the husband should take some accountability for leaving it behind.

    Somehow, I don't think I'd be too shocked to learn that the husband actually posted the pics, got caught, then came up with some lame story about "losing his cell phone."

    I saw this on the news this morning and couldn't stop laughing! Obviously this man has never heard of a key guard.

    McDonald's is being sued on the basis of who has the deepest pockets. Not much money to be made out of minimum wage employees.

    There's a lot of case law about when employers are liable or not for their employees actions. Most often it must be related to the performance of their job duties.

    No doubt the plaintiffs will hope for a sympathetic jury who will ignore past precedents. And if their attorneys are working for little more than contingency, what have they got to lose?

    Whereas McDonald's will be paying 6-figures to their corporate attorneys during the case, and may settle out of court to avoid further cost, and an uncertain court outcome.

    What truly disturbing about this is that these people have so little sense of personal privacy, discretion, dignity and justice. While I abhor frivolous lawsuits, this man forgot his phone, he didn't accidentally post nude pictures on a public site. This issues are that the individuals should be sued for their part and not McDonalds. It is the employees that were in the wrong and not the company. Suing McDonalds gets the big money but doesn't punish the perpetrators. This then addresses the second issue: greed. They [the husband and wife] don't want justice, they want money. If they wanted justice, they would address the crime and not the potential financial gain.

    Sadly, this is all too common an occurrence.

    I bet the couple created the whole scenario themselves, they've invented a reason to sue someone with money. They'd have been better off spilling McDonald's hot coffee on their laps. That one works great.

    Don't worry, McDonald;s is perfectly capable of filing a countersuit for harassment or whatever the law calls screwing around in court.

    If I were the judge I'd tell these dimwits to sue the minimum-wage kids who did the posting of the pics.
