You can probably sue for a court order prohibiting him from doing anything with the video. You can probably in a manner that will get you an immediate restraining order. My office number is 212-385-8015 and a link to my web site it below.

I am sorry to hear about your situation. You can try to take him to court on an emergency basis by filing an Order to Show Court. It would seek a restraining notice. It is up to the Judge whether it will be granted or not.

You should contact an attorney to discuss your questions as additional information would be helpful.

Our firm has many years of experience in this field.

I wish you the best of luck.
