Via GMA- apparently a case in Massachusetts resulting in a timing that indicates upskirting not being protected under the peeping Tom laws. The theory of the judge - you don't have an expectation of privacy in public, ergo upskirt away.
For those who don't know - upskirting is filming up someone's skirt.
The state is looking to update their laws to account for this ruling ("account" meaning update the laws so that upskirting would be considered illegal). But this ruling should have never happened in the first place. I may not have the expectation of privacy in public, but I should have the expectation to not have somebody film up my ass. This encourages upskirting, embarrassment, and violence as those "upskirters" feel validated by the law and may take more physical measures to get what they want because it's legal.
