PHILIPPI, W.Va. (AP) - Four women at a private West Virginia university say their former assistant basketball coach secretly photographed them nude.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail (https://bit.ly/1IRgFvK ) reports the women have filed separate lawsuits in Barbour County Circuit Court against Alderson Broaddus University in Philippi and Collins Murphy.

They say Murphy was the resident director at their dorm, giving him access to restrooms. The lawsuits state they found a camera last year after one of the women was forwarded a nude photograph of herself.

The lawsuit claims invasion of privacy, among other things.

The newspaper said Murphy could not be reached for comment.



In a statement issued Saturday, Alderson Broaddus said it can’t comment on pending litigation. The statement also said Murphy had not been employed by the school for more than three years.
