CHICAGO — A woman is suing an apartment building tenant and the building's management, alleging her privacy was violated when her neighbor secretly recorded her, and the apartment manager allegedly did nothing to stop it from happening, even though he purportedly had been told it was going to happen.
The woman filed a complaint on Oct. 5 in Cook County Circuit Court against the tenant and New Management Ltd., alleging the other tenant secretly recorded activities occurring in the plaintiff's apartment and turned over material to management in an attempt to embarrass the plaintiff and to get management to take adverse action against the plaintiff's tenancy.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she suffered damages from the invasion of her privacy. The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible because her neighbor allegedly invaded her privacy after informing the apartment manager in advance that he intended to do so, with no interference from the manager.
The plaintiff seeks actual damages in excess of $50,000 and punitive damages greater than $50,000. She is represented by attorney Jay Kumar of Chicago.
