A second lawsuit has been filed against a suburban Philadelphia school district accused of spying on students through cameras in school-issued laptop computers.

Jalil Hasan, who graduated from Lower Merion High School last spring, says the school district activated remote-tracking software after he left the laptop at school Dec. 18.

The lawsuit filed Tuesday in federal court says the laptop was returned three days later, but the surveillance software remained activated for about two months.

The suit alleges that more than 1,000 photos were taken, 469 from the webcam and 543 screen shots.

Attorney Mark Haltzman is representing Hasan and his family, as well as the family that filed the original lawsuit against the district in February. Henry E. Hockeimer Jr., who represents the district, has declined comment.
