MIAMI, FL– March 23, 2023- Bast Amron Special Counsel Brian Tannebaum was quoted in a recent article by The Daily Business Review, ‘’’This Question Comes Up Often’: Judges Divided Over Secretly Recorded Phone Calls.”
“We’re talking about this in a civil context but recording phone calls in Florida is a felony,” said legal author and ethics expert Brian Tannebaum, president of the Florida Association of Bar Defense Lawyers. “This question comes up often: What if the call isn’t made from Florida?”
While not involved with this case, Tannebaum said that the Fourth District’s comment that a cellphone can be used anywhere “is interesting.”
“If the caller is recording a Florida resident who happens to be in Texas, should they get the benefit of temporary geography?” Tannebaum wondered. “I’d like to see a holding on this that resolves the issue of from where the call is recorded.”
