Distribution of recorded conversation to outside third parties?JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.Customer: GeorgiaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No. Not Yet.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Recently, I had a disagreement with another local business owner over a transaction. The transaction went south. It was brought to my attention by another third-party that our conversation was recorded with my consent or knowledge and trying to use it against me. This was not in person. This was done via cell phone. We were both at home. I seen the email of the recorded conversation that was sent me by email in an audio file. This person who received the information isn't a law enforcement official or lawyer. I'm familiar with the Georgia Recording Law.But isn't it illegal for any person to divulge or distribute to any person the content or substance of any private message, photograph or communication without the consent of all parties involved.This is what Georgia Ga. Code Ann. § 16-11-62(6) States. I'm I correct or being far-fetched?

Last December ,as a cost savings, fired me at the age of 72. In January, I went to work for a competitor.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: TexasJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I had signed a somewhat vague non compete and confidentiality agreement. There has been no objection to my going to work for a competitor, but they consider any and everything confidential.....very security oriented. They did however neglect to remove the access to their central computer from my personal laptop. What am I obligated to do, if anything?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I received a letter from them reminding me that the agreement is in effect. They have lost a couple of order to me. I should like to have the thing removed but I cannot delete it since I do not have authority.
