    Question Are Recorded Conversations Admissable in Court?

    My question involves court procedures for the state of: MICHIGAN


    I'm just wondering what the laws are regarding recorded conversations.

    If I recorded some conversations between myself and another party, are they admissable in court? The other party in the conversation was NOT notified the calls were being recorded.

    Were these phone calls? Michigan requires all parties to be notified of recording.

    The caller (person secretly recording the calls) is in Michigan. The person being recorded lives in Ohio, but the court case is taking place in Michigan.

    I emailed my attorney, and they said
    They might be admissible. Attn xxxxx is to provide me copies of everything that he has. There were 3 tapes in his very thick folder.
    This is not very reassuring to me. My attorney should know that it's not admissible, shouldn't she? What can I tell her?

    No, it does not. Incorrect claims to the contrary may be found on the web, but in Michigan any party to a conversation may record it without notice to the other participants.

    See...that is why advice on teh intrenet *g* is worth what you pay for!

    I'm quite sure Aaron has much better advice than I do, as does your lawyer.

    Sorry I was mistaken.
