Recording the cops

After Rodney King, you would think that it would be obvious that it is legal to record cops doing their dirty work. Bit it still gets litigated:
It's refreshing, therefore, to read that a Federal Appeals Court has found unconstitutional the arrest of a Massachusetts lawyer who used his phone to video-record an arrest on the Boston Common.
The court even ruled that the lawyer could sue the cops for damages for interfering with his rights.

But a Chicago woman is still being prosecuted for similar recording.
