Four women who were patrons at a huge Dallas-area day spa in June are suing for privacy rights violations after staff spied on and harassed them in locker rooms. According to the lawsuit, male staff members photographed and spied on the women in and out of their bathing suits throughout the facility.
One woman stated she first noticed Spa Castle staff attempting to conceal telephones with towels and photograph her at the pool area in her bathing suit. The woman then went into the shower area inside the women’s locker room. Upon exiting one of the shower stalls, the woman states that a member of male staff was staring at her and other nude women inside the locker room. After complaining to the front desk, Castle Spa dismissed her concerns and informed her that any complaints needed to be submitted by email.
Another woman from the lawsuit stated that as she walked out of a shower inside the locker room, two men were standing in the shower area staring at the nude women. She said she then got into a heated exchange with one of the employees demanding that they leave while the other began taking more photos on his telephone. According to the lawsuit, when asked to leave, one of the employees stated, “You have a problem, you are uncomfortable, you [expletive] leave.”
The four women claim their privacy rights were violated by Castle Spa and are demanding more than $1 million in damages.
