Naperville, IL (PRWEB) April 09, 2014
Naperville DUI Lawyer Donald J. Ramsell recently won an Illinois Supreme Court case for his client. Ramsell presented his oral arguments for the case People v. Deforest Clark (Case No. 15776) held before the Illinois Supreme Court back in January. The case questioned the constitutionality of eavesdropping laws in Illinois. In the opinion reached, the Illinois Supreme Court ruled that the state’s criminal eavesdropping statute is unconstitutional.
The panel of Judges decided that the statute violated the First Amendment because it applied to all conversations, including those conversations that cannot be considered private such as loud exchanges on a private street, a political debate on a college campus or the public communications between law enforcement and citizens. The Illinois Eavesdropping Act, which bans the audio recording of conversations without the consent of all parties, has been scrutinized for years as Illinois legislative efforts to revise the law have continuously fallen short.
Illinois DUI lawyer Donald Ramsell along with attorney Nicole Sartori represented the defendant Deforest Clark in relation to the two felony counts charged against him for recording conversations with an opposition attorney during child support hearing 11CF464 held in Kane County Court.
"Obviously, my client is extremely pleased with the outcome. We felt that it was the correct decision. My client was simply trying to keep a record of a court proceeding that he was handling pro se, there was never any nefarious intent on his part, “ explains criminal defense attorney Donald Ramsell.
