A Wisconsin woman visiting Chicago this summer said she was using the bathroom at a downtown Ghirardelli Chocolate Company store when she noticed the lid of the trash can moving slightly.

Then she said she saw a man peeking through that lid, watching her.

A lawsuit recently filed in Cook County Circuit Court seeks millions from the chocolate company for the alleged invasion of privacy.

Lisa Stewart claims in the lawsuit that the men's and women's bathrooms at the store, 830 N. Michigan, shared a trash can, with a metal lid on each side of an adjoining wall.

She claims that a male employee bumped into her on her way into the bathroom, and after she went inside, her fiance watched as the employee went into the men's restroom next to it.

The employee had earlier "tampered with the lid on the ladies' bathroom receptacle so that he could view women who were using the toilet," the lawsuit says.
