After reviewing about 60 surveillance videos recorded at the jail, the plaintiffs’ attorney James Egan claimed that only women were asked to undress in a cell equipped with a camera.

All of the men brought to the station changed behind a curtain in a separate part of the jail, Egan said.

The 11 women and one man, who joined the suit because his private parts were exposed when he used a toilet in the cell, were all arrested on suspicion of DUI in Puyallup over the past two years, Egan said.

The Puyallup Police Department denied all of Egan’s claims of voyeurism.
