Supreme Court upholds right to record police in public places

The case was from Illinois, but echoed our Simon Glik case. By declining to hear an appeal from the state of Illinois, the nation's highest court left standing a lower-court ruling that you have a First Amendment right to record police on the job in a public place.

In both cases, the rulings came on state laws that made it a crime to record somebody without their permission.
