A class action lawsuit was filed on Friday by 31 Jane and John Does in Florida accuses authorities of illegally videotaping customers getting massages at Orchids of Asia, the same spa facility where New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft allegedly paid for illegal sexual services.

The class action lawsuit accuses the defendants of violating the patrons’ constitutional rights to privacy.

This lawsuit continues to raise questions about the legality of cameras being installed in the facility, which began surveilling its customers on November 6, 2018.

We talk to legal experts about the likelihood that legal massage customers will prevail in this case.
