  1. Larry A. Peters said

    There is an indication that a recording taken from Maryland to the District of Columbia could fall under Maryland Law, where there is two party consent. The reason Linda Tripp was vindicated was the conversation was across state lines and Maryland law did not apply otherwise they would have convincted her. Am I wrong in this assumption, because the news media left the story as soon as they got their pound of flesh.
