Supreme Court sides against Illinois in police taping case

A win for the good guys. Supreme Court rejects plea to ban taping of police in Illinois:

The Supreme Court has rejected an appeal from the Cook County state’s attorney to allow enforcement of a law prohibiting people from recording police officers on the job.

The justices on Monday left in place a lower court ruling that found that the state’s anti-eavesdropping law violates free speech rights when used against people who tape law enforcement officers.
