Surgeon Posted Nude Photos, Woman Says
Srin McAuley reports:
A woman claims her plastic surgeon posted nude photos of her on Facebook without her consent. She claims Dr. Dennis Hurwitz and the Hurwitz Center for Plastic Surgery posted Before and After photos of her from her neck to her knees, along with her name, allowing anyone who looked at the photos “to be able to immediately ascertain [her] identity.”
The woman says she did not give Dr. Hurwitz or his surgery center permission to post the photos, and that they “were obligated to implement adequate practices and security measures to prevent their unauthorized distribution.”[…]
She says the photos were also posted onto Windows Live SkyDrive, a publicly accessible online file storage and sharing application. And she says SkyDrive has nude photos of 13 other women posted with her, in a folder attributed to Kate Jones. The photos “all appear to be taken at the Hurwitz Center,” according to the complaint.

Dr. Hurwitz’s office did not respond to a request for a response to the lawsuit by the time of this publication.
