A Westport couple is suing the town and several of its police officers for what they claim is unlawful video surveillance of their home, according to the Connecticut Law Tribune.
John and Alison Borg, both psychologists, said that a long-running dispute with a neighbor in their Sterling Drive neighborhood has led to video cameras being set up near their property to monitor potential criminal activity.
“This is a serious invasion of their privacy. It’s pretty disturbing,” their lawyer, A. Paul Spinella, of Spinella & Associates in Hartford, told the newspaper “It is our absolute position this is a fundamental Fourth Amendment violation and any surveillance of this type should be made with a warrant.”
The newspaper said Town Attorney Ira Bloom declined to comment on the suit and that it would be handled by an attorney for the town’s insurance carrier.
