Sprint Corp sued over nude photo posting
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A couple is suing Sprint Corp., claiming an employee posted their nude photos online.
City News Service says Tuesday's lawsuit in Los Angeles alleges invasion of privacy and identity theft.
According to the suit, the woman took her cellphone to a Sprint branch in Los Angeles last year to exchange it for a newer model but didn't erase the data because she wanted her phone numbers transferred to the new device.
The phone also contained some intimate photos of the couple that she'd forgotten about.
The woman claims she was promised the phone would be wiped before it was refurbished but an employee at a Sprint factory in Kentucky found the photos and posted two to her Facebook page.
A message seeking comment from a Sprint spokeswoman wasn't immediately returned.
