    Answered . Your situation description appears vague. Who is recording and for what purpose? If you have a reasonable expectation of privacy there should not be a recording made. The Michigan Supreme Court has not weighed in on this yet. The damages would be constitutional ones and it would depend on the situation if you were illegally recorded. It is a very fact specific inquiry and difficult to prove damages on. You would likely need to consult with a lawyer specializing in constitutional rights.
