Wyoming


It is legal in Wyoming, for a party to a wire, oral, or electronic communication, to record that communication, and it is also legal for anyone to record with the consent of one of the parties to a communication, unless the communication is intercepted to further a criminal or tortious purpose. Wyo. Stat. § 7-3-702.

Under the statute, consent is not required for the taping of a non-electronic communication uttered by a person who does not have a reasonable expectation of privacy in that communication. Wyo. Stat. § 7-3-701.

Recording communications, or disclosing their contents with reason to believe they were obtained illegally, is a felony punishable by a fine of not more than $1,000 and imprisonment for not more than five years. Wyo. Stat. § 7-3-710. Violations also create the potential for civil liability for actual damages or $1,000 for each day of violation, whichever is more. Punitive damages, litigation costs, and attorney fees can be recovered, as well.
