Ohio Man Sues Over Camera In Hotel Room

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A suburban Cleveland man has filed a $1.5 million lawsuit against a Marriott hotel in Knoxville, Tenn., after finding a hidden camera in his room.

Bryan Brewer of Chardon discovered the video camera in his bathroom's light fixture while on a business trip in July.

Brewer's lawyer said that he noticed the small camera after accidentally breaking the light.

The lawsuit said that security personnel determined that the video camera was connected to the bathroom light switch so it would begin recording when the light was turned on.
