The Illinois Eavesdropping’s battle isn’t over yet. On March 15th, 2012, Melongo will argue her motion to dismiss. She recorded Pamela Taylor, a Cook County Court Manager, for an alleged tampered court transcript. She’s challenging this controversial law on First and Fourteenth Amendments grounds.

The illinoiscorruption.net has issued an informational video and a press release, to help the media and the general public in the upcoming oral argument at the Illinois Supreme Court hearing in Annabel Melongo’s eavesdropping case. The hearing is scheduled for January 14th, 2014, at the 18th floor of the Michael A. Bilandic Building, 160 N. LaSalle Street, Chicago at 9.30 am.

Video: http://www.illinoiscorruption.net/common/vide...
Press Release: http://www.illinoiscorruption.net/common/pres...

Please support this cause. The Illinois Eavesdropping law at its very core creates a two-class legal system wherein the conversations of the powerful and well-connected are protected to the detriment of the less powerful. The upcoming oral argument presents a unique opportunity for the common citizen to re-establish that legal balance that will unequivocally establish a right to record public officials in their public duties.

Therefore, please contribute to this all-important hearing by either attending it, writing about it, spreading the word or just forwarding the below video and press release to anybody who might be of any help.

By the democratic party. Top to bottom. There is no justice for anybody unless you are a member of the democratic party madigans or corrupt union boss. ALL of these judges are controled by entrenched democrats who will destroy them if they disobey them. Especially if they are from Crook County.

No Justice !

As everyone must already know. The Eavesdropping law has been found to be unconstitutional. Hooray for Annabel Melongo. It was a long fight and she deserves credit for her fight. Good Job Annabel.
