"The question here is whether the First Amendment prevents Illinois prosecutors from enforcing the eavesdropping statute against people who openly record police officers performing their official duties in public." The majority on a divided three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit reversed the dismissal of a lawsuit challenging the eavesdropping statute and directed the entry of a preliminary injunction blocking enforcement of the eavesdropping statute as applied to audio recording of the sort at issue in the case in a ruling issued today.

Circuit Judge Diane S. Sykes wrote the majority opinion, in which Circuit Judge David F. Hamilton joined. Circuit Judge Richard A. Posner (non-kidney edition) issued a dissenting opinion.

Update: In early coverage, The Chicago Tribune has a news update headlined "Federal appeals court bans enforcement of Illinois eavesdropping law."

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has a blog post titled "Federal appeals court blocks Illinois law against recording police doing their jobs."

At "The Volokh Conspiracy," Eugene Volokh has a post titled "Seventh Circuit: Ban on Audio Recording of Police Officers Likely Unconstitutional."

And the ACLU of Illinois has issued a news release headlined "Victory for First Amendment Right to Audio Record Police."
