Carroll v. Merrill Lynch, No. 12-1076 (7th Cir. Oct. 16, 2012)

Employees who wish to tape record conversations at or about work should be forewarned that, in some jurisdictions, secret and unconsented recordings are not allowed. From Illinois - which treats such one-party recordings as a felony - comes a case where one co-worker sued another (and the co-worker's spouse, as well) for taping an enraged phone call and turning the recording over to the employer. The defendants prevailed on summary judgment because of an exception in the law for recordings made under a "reasonable suspicion that another party to the conversation is committing, is about to commit, or has committed a criminal offense against that person or a member of his or her immediate household."
