Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
It is not a violation of any WI laws or even federal laws for people to overhear conversations through walls I am afraid. When someone is in a public facility, even a hotel room, there is a limited expectation of privacy because the walls may indeed be thin. So it would be up to people having a conversation to keep it low enough not to be heard through walls or to take the conversation elsewhere. As long as electronic listening devices are not placed in the room, if it is simply overheard through the walls there is no law that protects that.
