Missouri, the state in which these events took place, does not label this act as illegal due to their adherence to "one-party consent". He said victims could theoretically sue for invasion of privacy, but "would need to show that the back of an Uber is a place where we can and should be expected to be private".

Children, intoxicated college students and public figures, including Jerry Cantrell, lead guitarist with the band Alice in Chains, have been among the unwitting passengers, the Post-Dispatch reported.

An Uber driver has been suspended after it emerged that he had been broadcasting his passengers' conversations live without their consent.
And this is why Gargac appears to be in the clear, legally: Missouri law doesn't require Gargac to let his passengers in on the fact that they're being recorded. It only takes the knowledge and consent of one participant in a conversation for its recording to be legal in the midwestern state.

Images suggest North Korea dismantling satellite launch site
Trump said last week that US relations with North Korea "are very good and the process is moving along". The nearby Vertical Engine Test Stand also shows signs of work taking place.
