penned typed a few thoughts on the legality of Mr Whyte’s taping of his lengthy chat in the club with Mr Grier.
Andy Muirhead at Scotzine.com has been kind enough to post it.
The short version?
Was it illegal for Mr Whyte to record his chat? No.
Could Mr Grier act to stop Mr Whyte selling the recording? Probably.
Is the recording admissible in court proceedings? If the court considers it is relevant and does not sufficiently offend against public policy considerations, then yes.
As you might expect, the piece is rather longer, and can be found at the link here.
