Submission + - Motorcyclist wins taping case against state police->

stevegee58 writes: Slashdot readers may recall the case of a Maryland motorcyclist (Anthony Graber) arrested and charged with wiretapping violations (a felony) when he recorded his interaction with a Maryland State Trooper.
(http://yro.slashdot.org/story/10/07/27/0212232/Facing-16-Years-In-Prison-For-Videotaping-Police)

Today, Judge Emory A Pitt threw out the wiretapping charges against Anthony Graber, leaving only his traffic violations to be decided on his October 12 trial date.

"The judge ruled that Maryland's wire tap law allows recording of both voice and sound in areas where privacy cannot be expected. He ruled that a police officer on a traffic stop has no expectation of privacy."

A happy day for freedom-loving Marylanders and Americans in general.
