Judge rules to allow bathroom cameras

Dennis Smith, the owner of Calabash Seafood Restaurant and Midway Lounge, installed a surveillance camera in his men’s bathroom, right above the stall, as a way to catch vandals. Smith maintained the cameras weren’t pointed right at the toilet or urinal, so it wasn’t an invasion of privacy. However, someone went to change his clothes in the bathroom, thinking it was a private area, and the whole thing was filmed by the camera. So Smith was arrested for unlawful videotaping. But the judge in the case just ruled in favor of Smith. The judge actually agreed with Smith’s reasoning that since the person changing was not in a stall, technically, if the bathroom door swung open, anyone could have seen him, so most of the bathroom is as good as a public space. So Smith got off, and the judge just set an insane precedent, lawfully allowing for cameras in bathrooms. The Resident discusses.
