Inmates are entitled to privacy on those calls, especially when talking with their lawyers.   “Securus knew these calls were being recorded unlawfully and covered it up by suppressing and concealing the true facts,” arguing Securus was obligated to disclose the call-recording. “Instead, Securus actively concealed, suppressed, omitted, and failed to disclose these true facts concerning the recording, storage, and security of private, confidential, and privileged attorney-client phone calls with the intent to induce plaintiffs to continue to purchase Securus’ communications services.”
