Casino Violates Wiretapping Laws

Be careful what you use your phone for at the casino.

Pretty wild.

Glad I'm paranoid... When ever I'm in a public place doing anything private on a phone (entering passwords etc) I don't have my screen in clear view. Also never use WiFi hot spots, use your own connection.

Re: Casino Violates Wiretapping Laws

I made a mistake posting the link in the OP. This one should work:

https://www.cardplayer.com/poker-new...apped-gamblers

I've been using forums too long to forget how to correctly post a url. It's not exactly difficult.

Re: Casino Violates Wiretapping Laws

meh. Am guessing court will eventually toss it on some variation that communications done in a public setting lose any manner of privacy attachment, much the same way as attorney-client privilege fades when there is a third-party present when the otherwise-protected conversation/communication occurred. While the camera was zoomed in, this is essentially no different that engaging in text/email with someone standing and looking over the shoulder. And, it isn't as though the existence of cameras in casinos is a unknown thing...

This seems to be about video of the communication, not a seizing of communications through the airwaves (which has its own unique body of law).

Ironically, the case would likely have been something with more teeth had they gone the route of improper releases of surveillance containing protected personal identifying information (which is how many credit card skim operations get taken down).

Curious whether any schmuck off the street can make a bid for surveillance video...responsive pleadings could be an interesting read. The first 56 pages from Plaintiff were pretty dry.
