US v. LEE, 01-1629
Defendant's convictions and sentence, stemming from his receipt of bribes while president of the International Boxing Federation, are affirmed. Monitoring and recording of meetings in his hotel suite with the consent of a participant did not violate his Fourth Amendment rights; there is no constitutionally relevant distinction between audio and video surveillance in this context.
