If you know who did it, then you sue them in a state in which they were when they placed the photographs on the internet. Since the internet is not restricted to just one state, you probably could also sue in the state in which you live. The big problem is being able to prove who did it as the web site operator may not know who did it and certainly will not help you in finding out. here.

It depends on the circumstances under which the person obtained them. There would have to be a lot more facts given. For example, if he is threatening you with putting them up if you or do not do something, then that could even be criminal, so a lot more must be known.

There are many factors to this. The sites themselves might violate criminal law in the states or federally, so report it to the local police as well as to the FBI and to the Attorney Generals in the different states. If it is a specific person who is doing this, it may be cyberstalking. Again, report the cyberstalking to police, FBI, and the Attorney General of each state. If you want to do a civil lawsuit, talk to a lawyer in your state. Such lawsuits can be expensive, but you may be able to get a judgement from the lawsuit. Your best bet may be to file criminal complaints as well as civil lawsuits.
