David A. Axelrod & Associates File Lawsuit Against Illinois Restaurant Owner for "Up-Skirting" Teenage Workers

David A. Axelrod and Associates, P.C. was interviewed by FOX32 News to discuss the civil lawsuit filed against a Will County restaurant owner who is accused of "up-skirting" teenage employees for 10 years. Michael Papandrea, the owner of Parmesan's Wood Stone Pizza, is accused of using shoe cameras to take more than 24,000 photographs of at least 8 females who were 14-years-old and 16-years-old at the time.

David A. Axelrod and Associates, P.C. filed a civil lawsuit in Cook County late Thursday afternoon against a South Suburban restaurant owner accusing him of using a covert, shoe camera to secretly shoot video up the skirts of eight female employees without their knowledge. The Complaint alleged that most were teenagers including a 14-year-old girl. The plaintiffs’ lawyers say a hard drive seized by Illinois State Police from the defendant’s Frankfort restaurant contains deleted files that have recently been retrieved by their forensic expert. They say the files contain more than 24,000 photographs and videos that appear to be taken over a decade of covert filming up the skirts of many young women.
