There is a gap ... in that our law does not reach all of the disturbing conduct that has been made possible by ever-advancing technology.
A woman claims a Georgia Publix employee took a video on his phone, pointed up her skirt. He was charged with invasion of privacy.
So why did he get off the hook? Because, technically, he didn't break any laws.
CBS News reported that the court's July 15 ruling said Brandon Lee Gary's actions aren't illegal.
You've just given people a license to continue this kind of conduct.
The law bans "the use of any device, without the consent of all persons observed, to observe, photograph, or record the activities of another which occur in any private place and out of public view."
Seems clear. But judges argued "place" doesn't refer to a part of the body, just actual locations.
Branch wrote that it is up to Georgia's lawmakers to close the loophole.
