this would be a divorced couple who were sitting in the car of the ex husband. He secretly recorded his ex wife as they discussed issues with their children. he now wants to enter this conversation into a court hearing
Very generally speaking, in the state of Texas a subterfuge recording is legally obtained if one party to the conversation has knowledge of the recording. That means it is not criminal or illegal; it does not make it admissible. Other factors at trial will determine if it is admissible. If it is admitted, the credibility of the recording will also turn on which party was aware of the recording.
