This is a clash between two critical societal values, the public’s right to know and the individual’s right to privacy.

Naperville, IL (PRWEB) February 06, 2014

DuPage DUI lawyer Donald J. Ramsell presented oral arguments for a case held before the Illinois Supreme Court on January 14. The case challenge the constitutionality of Illinois eavesdropping laws. The Illinois eavesdropping law bans the audio recording of conversations without the consent of all parties.

Ramsell represents the defendant in the Illinois case People v. Deforest Clark. Case No. 15776 relates to the two felony counts charged against defendant Deforest Clark for recording conversations with the opposition lawyer during child support hearing 11CF464 held in Kane County Court.

“This is a clash between two critical societal values, the public’s right to know and the individual’s right to privacy,” says Ramsell.

The Illinois Eavesdropping Act, which bans the audio recording of conversations without the consent of all parties, has been under scrutiny for several years. Illinois legislative efforts to revise the law have been ineffective.

“The problem we have in society is the law sometimes swings too far one way or the other, and it becomes problematic, “says Ramsell.
