David Meyer, a 29-year-old former manager of Finish Line clothing store in Milpitas, allegedly installed hidden cameras inside the women's dressing rooms and bathrooms nearly 18 months ago. He is named in a lawsuit filed against the company in federal court.
"He's able to videotape the female employees going to the bathroom," Meyer's former girlfriend, who wished to remain anonymous, told KTVU "He just said, he's had some issues and that he was trying to work it out, but he had no real explanation."
Attorney Joshua Ezrin, who is representing five former and current Finish Line employees, told KTVU that his clients, who were all between the ages of 16 and 19, are obviously suffering from emotional distress for unknowingly being videotaped by the hidden cameras.
Meyer has never been charged, but Finish Line representatives said in a statement that they are cooperating with law enforcement officials, who believe Meyer has left the state.
"The allegations in this lawsuit describe a situation isolated to an ex-employee whose alleged actions were neither known to nor in any way condoned by the company," Finish Line officials said in a statement released to the media.
