upskirt video

Chicago February 19, 2021 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.  

The Complaint, filed in the Circuit Court of Cook County, alleges that United Airlines Inc. negligently, carelessly and improperly breached its duty of care by its failure to immediately land the aircraft despite Mr. Christman's acute medical attack. As a direct result, Mr. Christman suffered severe injuries during a flight from Chicago O'Hare International Airport to Fiumicino Airport in Rome, Italy, on May 21, 2016.
