    Egregious Eavesdropping Wins Police No Favors

    Florida police who unlawfully recorded conversations between an attorney and her client were properly denied immunity, the 11th Circuit ruled ... It is undisputed that, during the course of this investigation, Detective Thomas Marmo conducted a noncustodial interview with the suspect Joel Studivant at the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office. Anne Marie Gennusa, Studivant's attorney, was present during the interview. During the interview, Studivant agreed to prepare a sworn written statement.

Brian Canova had continued to monitor their conversation via a closed-circuit camera.
