    Answered . My colleagues are correct. Not only is this extreme and outrageous conduct that is intrusive of your privacy interest and your civil rights, but likely his actions are criminal in nature with all of the new "sexting" laws that are now in place. If you follow the news, numerous famous actors, actresses, and singers have been able to recover in lawsuits for individuals publishing such pictures of them against their wishes. Take the advice of the attorney in TX who responded to your posting and contact him ASAP. He might be able to file for an injunction preventing your ex-boyfriend from posting anything before any posts are made.
