Butt dialers have no right to privacy, rules court


Let the butt-dialer beware. If you unwittingly call someone on your phone, that person has the legal right to listen to your conversation with other people.

The decision came from a court ruling on a case in which an employee overheard the chief executive at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport tell other people in the room that he was going to fire the employee's boss. She told her boss, and the man who butt-dialed her filed a lawsuit against her under federal wiretapping guidelines.
