Big Brother: School Took Thousands Of Photos Inside Students' Homes

Remember the Pennsylvania high school accused of spying on its students via their their laptop webcams?
Student Blake Robbins says Lower Merion School District officials secretly activated the webcams and captured him sleeping in bed and partly undressed. They say the school also took screen shots of instant messages he exchanged with friends. And his lawyer says they have evidence the school captured thousands of screenshots and webcam images, many taken inside students' homes. The district admits it made mistakes in activating the webcams to locate missing laptops. But officials insist they have no evidence employees used the software program improperly.
Lawyers from both sides are meeting today.
