Jeff Gorman reports:

A Wisconsin couple did not invade their neighbors’ privacy by placing a $50 recorder from Radio Shack on the windowsill in order to bust them for being too noisy, the Wisconsin Court of Appeals ruled.

Andrea Burns and James Barr complained to police that their neighbors, Karen and Barry Poston, were harassing them and making too much noise. The police responded that they would listen to audio recordings of the offending racket.
