Ex-employee's lawsuit claims Tampa company didn't act on covert videos

Days after the chief financial officer of a Tampa maintenance company was accused of recording videos of female employees using the bathroom and showering, the former information technology employee who exposed the chief financial officer's alleged actions has sued the company and his ex-boss.

On March 28, Jeremy Lenkowski, the former information technology director for MaintenX , filed a lawsuit accusing the company's president and vice president, among others, of failing to act after Lenkowski showed them videos he'd discovered on CFO James Stanton Jr.'s laptop in 2010.

Lenkowski claims MaintenX's leaders threatened to sue him for defamation if he went to police and spread lies about him, ultimately leading him to suffer an emotional and mental breakdown.

After quitting MaintenX a year ago, Lenkowski went to police, who arrested Stanton on March 21. He is charged with 123 counts of video voyeurism, a third-degree felony, and has been fired from MaintenX. Two of the women in the videos have sued him.

The company's vice president has said that none of its leaders knew about the videos.

Lenkowski is seeking damages for invasion of privacy, negligence, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. A MaintenX official referred questions about the lawsuit to an attorney, who could not be reached Wednesday.
