School settles webcam spying case for $610,000

Posted on Wednesday, October 13 2010 @ 21:42:09 CEST by

Wired reports the Lower Merion School District agreed to shelve out $610,000 to settle two webcam spying lawsuits. Two spied-upon kids will receive a handsome compensation for the invasion of their privacy, but it looks like the lawyers are the real winners in this case:
Prosecutors and the FBI opened an inquiry following a February privacy lawsuit accusing administrators of spying on students with webcams on the 2,300 district-issued MacBooks. The lawyers who filed lawsuits on behalf of two students acquired evidence in pretrial proceedings showing that the district secretly snapped thousands of webcam images of students, including pictures of youths at home, in bed or even “partially dressed.”

In an announcement Tuesday, the Board of School Directors agreed to pay $175,0000 to student Blake Robbins, and $10,000 for former pupil Jalil Hasan. As much as $425,000 in legal fees will be paid to their legal team, led by Mark Haltzman.
