I can understand why the woman in this situation would want to sue for something after government officials watched her having sex with another woman while she was drunk and in a jail cell, but this doesn't seem to be the right reason:
Both women were thrown in the drunk tank for public intoxication. They met there and apparently shared more than a penchant for pints -- namely, mutual sexual attraction. They became intimate with one another in the cell, in what an RCMP press release described as "what appeared to be consensual sexual contact." Seven male employees of the jail -- four RCMP officers, three employees of the City of Kamloops -- allegedly watched the encounter over closed-circuit TV cameras.
News coverage of the incident included unconfirmed reports that one of the two women "may" have HIV. So now the second woman has filed a lawsuit in BC Supreme Court seeking damages from her jailhouse paramour, the men who peeped on them, the provincial and federal governments and the City of Kamloops.
Describing herself as "horrified and scared and mad," the woman told the Kamloops Daily News that she feared for her health: "It was the worst thing in the world that could have possibly happened to me. Every day is a struggle."
As I and several other Bilerico contributors have written about before, these laws lend themselves to abuse and often the legal actors involved don't ask questions about what specifically happened or whether HIV was actually transmitted, just if something that could be labeled "sex" happened. While there are things two women could do that would involve HIV risk, well, it's unlikely.
