    Roomate Nuisance

    My roomate before she moved out. took pictures of some things and is threatening to show them to a manager at a place we mutually work. The pictures are of stuff from the job but there not mine. The pictures weren't even taken by her though before she moved out her b/f would come over to get things of her's randomly and apparently was sneaking around the apt and he took the pictures I'm just not sure what to do about this? Is this an invasion of my privacy can I be fired for this ??

    If the items were in a common place, like the living room, then there is likely no invasion of privacy. Also if they are not your items, how could it be an invasion of your privacy?

    You said you had a roommate and this was her boyfriend who did this. At the time she was living there, she shared the property and the space with you. This is why I believe it matters where the items were in the apartment (common living area or your personal bedroom). Also privacy laws vary from state to state.

    I don't see any legal issues here. I don't believe there is any invasion of privacy here.
