Last fall a Lincoln County woman dropped off what she considered a normal roll of family snapshots at a Salina Wal-Mart photo lab. Tamie Dragone calls the events that followed the most humiliating experience of her life.
A Wal-Mart employee called authorities because the film included partially nude pictures of Dragone's three-year-old daughter. Police detained and questioned Dragone for almost an hour in the store manager' office.
Dragone is suing Wal-Mart for invasion of privacy. She is asking for more than $75,000 in actual damages and unspecified amount in punitive damages.
Dragone says there is nothing inappropriate about the pictures. One shows the girl shirtless in a kiddie pool, another shows the child's naked bottom as she lay on the living room floor.
