— A former McDonald's employee accused of posting nude pictures of a woman on the Internet denied wrongdoing in his answer to a lawsuit against him.

Phillip and Tina Sherman filed a lawsuit Nov. 21, 2008, against McDonald's Corp.; Matthews Management Co .,which owns a McDonald's franchise in Fayetteville; and Aaron Brummley, a manager at the restaurant.

Phillip Sherman on July 5, 2008, left his cell phone in the McDonald's restaurant on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard in Fayetteville. His wife had previously sent nude pictures of herself to his cell phone for his own use, according to the complaint.

The Shermans seek more than $3 million in damages after nude photos of Tina Sherman were posted on a Web site and she received threatening and harassing text and phone messages, according to the lawsuit.

McDonald's filed the motion for a third-party complaint against Cody Hayes, claiming that if nude pictures were posted on the Internet, that they were published by Hayes.

Hayes' attorney, Steven Kay, wrote in the answer that "no factual basis has been plead to show that (Hayes) had any knowledge or participated in any action involving a misappropriation of the cell phone photos." He asked that the complaint against Hayes be dismissed.
