Robert A. Bertsche Quoted in Patriot Ledger Regarding Challenge to “Two Party” Law Concerning Audio Recordings

February 27, 2011

Rob Bertsche is quoted in an article concerning a recent challenge to the “decades-old” law that requires consent from both parties before an audio recording of a conversation can be made. The law has come under fire in recent months as police around the country have used such laws to arrest those who use cell phones or video cameras to tape the activities of police officers.

Rob states, “I think the case is about whether the First Amendment permits a citizen in a public place to audio record a public event involving public officials. That’s why it is a compelling case.”
