A Cobb County Superior Court Judge ruled Friday that a woman who secretly recorded herself engaged in a sex act with Waffle House CEO Joe Rogers illegally violated his privacy.
Reports say Rogers' attorneys are hopeful that the judge's recent ruling will lead to charges of sexual abuse being dismissed.
A former housekeeper for Rogers accused him of forcing her to perform sex acts with him to keep her job.
Superior Court Judge Robert Leonard learned that the woman was sent to a private investigator's office and was given a spy camera that was used to record in Rogers' bedroom without his consent.
Court documents say the woman also made 15 audio recordings of sexual encounters and kept a towel that held Rogers' DNA.
