In a bizarre case attorney Mark Wenzel has plead guilty to planting hidden cameras in two restrooms in Coffee Bean and Tea Leave stores in Encino. He plead guilty to the crime of invasion of privacy and was ordered to perform 200 hours of community service and pay a fine of $1,000. In addition he was ordered to stay at least 100 yards from all Coffee Bean Stores.

Just when you think you have heard it all. A lawyer decides to hide cameras in restrooms of a Coffee Bean store? The police report that the way Wenzel’s conduct was discovered was because he either “intentionally or inadvertently recorded himself while he was installing one of the cameras in the restroom.

A law firm has now filed a proposed class action on behalf of the person who found two of the cameras seeking monetary damages against Wenzel and the coffee store.

It will certainly be interesting to see who joins this lawsuit and how many people actually feel that they were videotaped while in the restroom at a Coffee Bean coffee shop. You certainly would think that when you go to use a restroom at a local coffee house you are not going to be videotaped while you use the bathroom.

We will keep you posted on developments on this case.
