Casino Employee In Undressing Hidden Camera Lawsuit

April 13th, 2012 Author:

A casino employee who claims to have been recorded undressing by a hidden video camera is suing her ex-employer for invasion of privacy, emotional distress and lost wages.

Kelle Ryan was working as a Players Club representative at the Island View Casino Resort in Gulfport, Mississippi and would regularly use the Players Club office to change clothes, along with other employees.

On one occasion, however, Kelle Ryan noticed a smoke detector in the office which didn’t seem to be working which, on closer examination, revealed a hidden camera underneath. Apparently, Ryan subsequently began to cry and shake before managing to compose herself and head off to the human resources office. On her way she was then confronted by security staff who proceeded to question her before escorting her off the property.

Furthermore, not only was Kelle Ryan fired for tampering and damaging casino property, but she was denied unemployment pay by the casino who claimed Kelle was fired for misconduct.

Despite the casino’s Security Director Bryan Roach installing the camera without apparently informing his boss, Roach insists he took the measure to monitor suspected drug activity. In addition, attorney for the Island View Casino Resort, Kimberly Rosetti, argued:

“There is no footage of her changing clothes during that time period and she testified that she didn’t change clothes during that time period. There’s no evidence that she was viewed changing clothes in that office.”

In the meantime, Judge John Gargiulo has dismissed the allegations that the casino contravened  Mississippi Gaming Commission regulations, or interfered with Kelle Ryan’s employment prospects. The other parts of her lawsuit have been upheld, though, and the case continues.
