ACLU: Tunkhannock student's cell phone photos private - News - The Times-Tribune

A former Tunkhannock Area High School student is accusing school and Wyoming County law enforcement officials of violating her privacy rights by seizing and searching her cell phone and punishing her for storing nude and semi-nude photos of herself on the device.

The woman, who was a 17-year-old senior at the time, contends in a civil rights suit filed Thursday that the intimate photos were intended to be viewed "only by herself and, perhaps, her longtime boyfriend." She is seeking unspecified damages and the destruction of all electronic and hard copies of the photos.

The woman, now 19 and living in Hughesville, is identified only by her initials - N.N. - in the complaint filed in U.S. District Court by the Philadelphia law firm Cozen O'Connor and the American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania.
