  • Somehow, at least in NY state I think it is illegal. Same goes for locker-rooms and fitting rooms. In places you expect total privacy, you should receive it.
  • I know it illegal to do it publicly. I don't know about private.
  • Stockton, Calif., Mall Uses Security Cameras in Restrooms. Byline: Reed Fujii Sep. 8--Jerry Precziado was brought up short last weekend while strolling through Sherwood Mall when his son, Christopher, 9, stopped at the security-and-information booth and began laughing.
