Lawyer Faces Employee Suit Alleging 'Extreme and Outrageous Voyeur Activities'

An Ohio lawyer convicted of tampering with evidence in connection with a pinhole camera found in the women’s restroom of his law office now faces an invasion of privacy lawsuit by two former employees.

The $2 million suit accuses Fostoria lawyer Donald Guernsey of “extreme and outrageous voyeur activities” and says the employees suffered severe emotional distress, according to the Review Times and the Toledo Blade.

Guernsey was convicted of two counts of tampering with evidence in a December trial and sentenced to community control for four years.

Guernsey was never charged with voyeurism. He was indicted on tampering charges two years after police found the camera in a February 2007 search of his offices at Guernsey & Guernsey, the Review Times says.
