It could be, if they could prove it was done "with intent to harass, intimidate, torment, or embarrass."

Correction, it is ILLEGAL if it's done "with intent to harass, intimidate, torment, or embarrass." So, to answer the question the way it was written, the answer is: it is likely illegal to post pics of your ex. Just don't do it.


Yes, if w/o consent and with the intent to harass or intimidate.


It would be ill advised and could land you in more trouble than you want.

J Charles Ferrari Eng & Nishimura 213.622.2255 The statement above is general in nature and does not constitute legal advice, as not all the facts are known. You should retain an attorney to review all the facts specific to your case in order to receive advise specific to your case. The statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship. Answers on Avvo can only be general ones, as specific answers would require knowledge of all the facts. As such, they may or may not apply to the question.
