California Supreme Court to Set to Rule in Our Case

We recently filed an appeal to the California Supreme Court asking it to stand by its previous ruling that Penal Code section 632 (unlawful recording of confidential communications) is a specific intent rather than general intent crime. The Court’s ruling will be key to many defenses we intend to raise at an upcoming jury trial. The Court has ruled on this issue in1969 but has not addressed it since then. The Attorney General has been ordered to respond to our appeal and we anticipate a decision soon.
