Do I have a reasonable expectation of privacy in my home in Texas?
Houston, TX |
If I am having a conversation with a person in my home and they record that conversation without my knowledge or consent, is that legal? Do I have a reasonable expectation of privacy in my home, and are they in violation of Federal & State Laws?
Generally speaking, Texas is a 'one-party' state, meaning it is legal to record a conversation as long as one party consents. So, if I'm a party to the conversation, I can record it even if you don't know I'm recording. It's possible there might be some kind of exception when the conversation is taking place inside your home, but I doubt it.
