It’s been a year since the Supreme Court ruled in a case involving a Pennsylvania man who claims he was forced to buy an expensive video camera lens to secretly film his wife’s private moments.
Now, the same man’s attorney is claiming that the lenses were used to secretly record his own phone calls.
The attorney, James A. Cipriano, has filed a motion in Pennsylvania Supreme Court to compel the state to produce the lenses to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which has filed the case on behalf of the man.
Ciprianos claims that the lens was purchased in 2012 by the man for his daughter’s wedding.
The lenses were attached to his iPhone by a special app that records video of the phone calls, but the phone is not connected to the camera.
The attorney’s motion cites a federal appeals court ruling that found the lenses did not violate privacy rights.
“These are the most powerful cameras on the planet,” Cipriani told The Daily Beast.
“They’re designed to capture the entire spectrum of what you can see and how you can view.
In the case of this camera, the only thing that you’re recording is the moment when you’re going through the bathroom, which is not your intimate moments, the intimate moments of your wife.
So, you’re capturing the moment where you’re having sex, but then the moment you’re not, which you can’t capture.”
According to Ciprieo, the cameras were “used by the woman to record her private moments, like kissing her husband, or holding her hand.”
The video that Cipricanos claims he recorded of his wife “is one of the most private and intimate moments I have ever experienced,” he said.
“I don’t know what else she can record.
She’s the only one I know who can record everything that I am doing.
It’s not that she wants to record it, but she doesn’t know that it’s happening.
He said he has also recorded conversations he had with his wife and that she would sometimes answer his phone with a question like “How is everything?”
The Pennsylvania Supreme court is scheduled to consider the motion this week.
The case was brought by the Pennsylvania State Police, and the ACLU is representing the man in his civil rights claim.
