Teddy Bears with bugs and a lawyer’s liability

 

Seth Leventhal writes about a very interesting case on his Minnesota Litigator blog today.  A father in a custody dispute gave his daughter a teddy bear with a listening device inserted in it.  The father’s lawyer then used the recordings in the divorce proceedings.  The Court ruled that the father had violated the federal Wiretap Act by intercepting communications without authorization, and the the lawyer was also liable under the statute for using the illegal recordings.
