from www.chron.com – A Southeast Texas attorney will file a class action lawsuit Thursday for women who claim spurned partners posted stolen nude photos of them on a “revenge porn” site.

Beaumont attorney John S. Morgan [pictured] said the lawsuit focuses on a site where women believe ex-boyfriends and ex-husbands have posted private photos of their exes without permission in retaliation after break ups. He said 23 women from around the state have signed onto the lawsuit, which will be filed in Galveston County, and he anticipates more to join. The lawsuit will claim invasion of privacy and mental anguish.

“I’m going after the revenge porn industry,” Morgan said. “Those sickos who post private information of women without their knowledge.”

The lawsuit targets the hosting site. Morgan said he also plans to sue the members and subscribers to the porn site.

“The only way to destroy this industry is to go after the people who fund it,” he said.

Morgan said a Beaumont woman, Holly Toups, first came forward after she found a picture of herself on the site. Since, other women whose pictures were posted without permission joined her, he said. He said about half the women do not know who posted the pictures and the other half suspect their former partners.

“Every one of them is emotionally devastated, some have become suicidal, others hermits,” Morgan said. “It’s empowering for them not to just have to sit there is silence and have their photos sent all over the world.”
