Illinois Eavesdropping Law Struck Down


After more than 50 years on the books, Illinois’s eavesdropping law has been struck down by the state Supreme Court. 

 

Since 1961, the law had made it a crime to record any conversation unless all parties to the conversation consented. But the high court ruled that the law criminalized recordings made in public, where there is no reasonable expectation of privacy. 

 

The American Civil Liberties Union praised the ruling… and noted that the law had generally only been enforced against people who had recorded police offices or public officials carrying out their duties.
