Court Rules it's Legal to Take Video of Women without their Permission

The Tennessee Court of Appeals has made a ruling about expectations of privacy in public spaces.

It has ruled it's perfectly legal to secretly film women without their permission so long as they are in public and wearing clothes.

The decision comes off the case of a man who in 2016 was found guilty of unlawful photography and sexual battery.

Prosecutors say David Lambert followed women around and took close-up photos of their breasts and bottoms in public for his own "sexual gratification."

Lambert argued it wasn't illegal because the women were all in public places when he took the pics.

Three Court of Appeals judges have agreed with him, saying that because we are exposed to the "capture of our images" on a near daily basis, what Lambert did should not be considered illegal.
