WAYNE, N.J. -- A northern New Jersey couple claim their real estate agent kept potential buyers away from their vacant home so he could use it for "sexual escapades" with a female colleague. The Record reports that the couple sued the real estate agents and their firm alleging breach of trust and fiduciary duties after the trysts were captured on security cameras in the house. The suit claims the male agent made a duplicate key to the house and intentionally listed it above market value to deter others from visiting the home.

The suit seeks compensatory damages for invasion of privacy, infliction of emotional distress, breach of contract, trespass of land and other civil counts. The two real estate agents, named in the suit, identified by The Record as Robert Lindsay (pictured at right), and Jeannemarie Phelan, could not be reached for comment by the AP.
