City workers sue Davenport over hidden bathroom camera
DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) — Eight Davenport employees have sued the city, saying the city didn’t properly supervise a former housing program manager who hid a camera in a restroom.
The lawsuit filed Tuesday in Scott County District Court seeks restitution for “permanent personal injuries” and “an immense amount of emotional distress.”
The former manager, Roy DeWitt, was sentenced in July to 16 years in prison after pleading guilty to eight counts of invasion of privacy.
The Quad-City Times reports that city attorney Tom Warner disputes the allegations and says the city was not negligent.
