LOS ANGELES, April 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Plaintiffs' trial lawyer Michael Alder of AlderLaw, P.C. in Beverly Hills, Calif., today launched an informational Web site – www.searspeepingtom.com – seeking and encouraging additional victims of Alejandro Gamiz to come forward. Gamiz has been charged with burglary and surreptitious filming of unsuspecting women in restrooms and fitting rooms at the North Hollywood, Calif., Sears location at 12121 Victory Boulevard.
Alder, along with co-counsel Bobby Saadian of Wilshire Law Firm, PLC, currently represents four of Gamiz's alleged victims, female employees of the Sears store where Gamiz worked in maintenance. According to evidence collected by the Los Angeles Police Department, the accused installed peepholes and between 20 and 60 cameras in multiple women's dressing rooms and employee bathrooms throughout the store. Videos of at least four women were disseminated over the Internet.
"We want to help any of the female employees and customers of this Sears store who may have been violated by Alejandro Gamiz and let them know they have every right to pursue justice for his actions," said Attorney Michael Alder. "Though Sears had its 175 local employees sign arbitration agreements before notifying them of the violations, alleged victims can choose to opt out of the agreement within 30 days of signing."
Gamiz was arrested on April 11, 2012 and has been released on $20,000 bail pending a May 11 trial date. For more information and to contact AlderLaw, visit www.searspeepingtom.com.
Alder is the president of the Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles (CAALA), the nation's largest, local association of plaintiffs' attorneys. He also is one of five founding members of the Trial Lawyers Charities, a non-profit organization that donates money and legal services to people in need in Los Angeles.
