    I was informed by a lawyer that it was not legal to use a recording as evidence ever since they passed privacy laws after that Linda Tripp/Monica Lewinsky escapade. You have to have permission now to record someone. If she gave you permission or voluntarily left information on an answering machine, then you could probably use it. I was being illegally hounded by a company who claimed I owed them money, (I didn't) and I hired a lawyer to get them off my back. (He did) I asked him the same question, and his response was what I first wrote.

    a conversation is legal when both partys are informed. ie:this conversation maybe recorded for teaching and study. that covers you.
