Illinois' Supreme Court Strikes Down State's Eavesdropping Law


The Illinois Supreme Court has struck down the state’s eavesdropping law as unconstitutional.

 

The 53-year-old statute had made it a crime to record conversations unless all parties consented to the recording.

 

But the justices noted that potentially made it a crime to make audio recordings in public… where the people being recorded had no legitimate expectation of privacy.

 

The ruling came in the case of a woman who was jailed for more than a year for recording several phone conversations with a Cook County Courts official.
