Judge Rules Against Spouse For Destroying Evidence of Illegal Surveillance
As an update to our New Jersey Law Journal article from last July, we continue to monitor cases that involve spouses that utilize electronic surveillance during their divorce action to spy on their spouse. According to an article in the January 7 issue of the New York Law Journal, a husband was sanctioned for destroying evidence on his wife obtained through surveillance. Moreover, the husband has been sued for allegedly violating the Federal Wiretap Act. Again, we caution parties seeking to use surveillance as part of their divorce strategy to proceed carefully. This is an instance where the husband may have gone too far.
