geek-squad-lawsuitLegal tangles can be quite a mess, just ask Samsung and Apple, and you will be able to see just how the rabbit hole does not have any end. At least not in sight for now. It so happens that a lady from Tuscaloosa woman has filed a lawsuit against Best Buy, touting that members of the Geek Squad have posted her nude photos online after they worked with her computer. The plaintiff happens to be a University of Alabama art student, and she has filed an invasion of privacy lawsuit against Best Buy, with her lawyer Steven Heninger of Birmingham touting that she has been left devastated and humiliated by the events.

In the seven-page civil lawsuit, it allegedly claims that back in August 2011, the plaintiff, who did work at the Best Buy on McFarland Avenue back then, sent her computer to the store and paid in full so that her hard drive problem could be fixed. However, in May this year, she was notified by a colleague that her nude photos had already made their way online, which means one of the possible ways of that happening was for a Geek Squad employee to take those photos from her computer in 2011 before uploading them to the Internet as well as linking them on Pirate Bay. Well, it just goes to show what are some of the stuff you should keep on your computer, and what should remain private – even if the computer’s spoiled or is in a mess.
