A question from Harvard Law School's tenured Twitterer

From Professor Charles Nesson's Twitter feed:

Well, I'm not aware that any state interferes with its citizens' ability to record themselves. But 12 -- including Massachusetts -- make it illegal to record others without their permission. And I'm not aware that any court has ever held that such "all-party consent" laws violate anyone's " record one's life." Judge Nancy Gertner, for one, does not seem to think so.
