Seeking Redemption, and Money Too

Mass. woman in sex tape with Buddhist monk

Apr 23 2013 

LOWELL, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts woman has filed a lawsuit against five people she alleges illegally distributed a video of her having a sexual encounter with a Buddhist monk.

Men was helping to lead an effort to raise $10 million for a new temple in Lowell. The sexual encounter took place at a temple in Chelmsford.  The Buddhist temple in the photo is in Japan.

Maya Men said in her lawsuit filed in Middlesex Superior Court last week that the defendants — at least one of whom is a monk — violated her right to privacy and her constitutional rights. She also says their actions intentionally inflicted emotional distress.

According to the lawsuit, Men "has been held up to her relevant community as an individual who should be shunned and scorned, called a thief, and referred to by a plethora of pejorative terms," The Sun of Lowell (http://bit.ly/17NhkJB ) reported.

Men is seeking damages and money for an investigation to locate and confiscate all copies of the video. She also is seeking a temporary restraining order against the defendants and a preliminary injunction barring further distribution or display of the recording.

An anonymous individual not connected with the case said the video might be available on YouTube.
