New York’s privacy laws are under scrutiny as lawyers for Alex Rodriguez try to track down the photographer who took a picture of him sitting on the toilet in his Park Avenue apartment he shares with Jennifer Lopez.
A picture making the rounds on social media shows the former New York Yankees slugger, known as “A-Rod”, looking at his phone in a white marble bathroom.
Michael Quinn, a New York art lawyer, said Rodriguez’s options for recourse were limited.
Via The Guardian:
“New York state’s laws on rights to privacy are sparse,” Quinn said. “Any redress for this type of invasion – a photograph taken into a subject’s unobstructed window from a distance – would be limited to cases involving commercial exploitation.
“With the continued onslaught of intrusive technologies, it may be time for the legislature to revisit privacy protections … of course, it may also be time for interior designers to bring back venetian blinds.”
Not much A-Rod will be able to do, but let’s be honest, it’s not really that damning of a picture.
No nudity, just a guy sitting on the head taking care of business.
No money to be made off of that.
