Wiretapping Legal with Special Circumstances
A New Jersey statute allowing law enforcement officers to tap conversations between people outside the state is not unconstitutional, provided the listening post in located here, the Appellate Division ruled Thursday. The court, in State v. Ates, A-2308-09, also held that the state law does not usurp federal authority by eradicating state boundaries because the federal wiretapping law "does the same thing." The precedential ruling came in an appeal by Edward Ates, convicted of murdering his former son-in-law, Paul Duncsak, who was shot seven times at his Ramsey home on Aug. 23, 2006.
