An Arkansas man on Friday filed a lawsuit against McDonald's, alleging a restaurant location uploaded nude photos of his wife onto a web site. In the suit, Phillip Sherman said he left his phone at a McDonald's location in Fayetteville, Arkansas, and that a manager promised the phone was secured for him to retrieve it. After picking up his iPhone, photos of Sherman's wife Tina Sherman made their way onto a web site -- along with her name, address and contact information, the suit claims. Embarrassed the Shermans must be, because "Tina Sherman nude" is currently one of the hottest Google search terms. Of course, if their story is true, the Shermans could have avoided this embarrassment altogether if Tina hadn't e-mailed her husband nude photos in the first place.

A man who accidentally left his mobile telephone in a branch of McDonald's is suing the fast-food chain after nude photos of his wife that had been stored in the device ended up on the internet. Philip Sherman says he was promised by staff at the burger restaurant in Fayette, Arkansas, that the handset would be turned off and securely stored until he could retrieve it. Instead, he alleges that employees at the branch ended up rifling through his phone's memory, address book, text messages and library of images before posting pictures of his wife, Tina, online. Next to the photographs, which were meant only for Mr Sherman's eyes, the miscreants added the McDonald's logo, together with its slogan "I'm lovin' it" and a caption describing Mrs Sherman as "hot like McDonald's' coffee".
