Two former attorneys at Legal Aid of NorthWest Texas have sued the organization and two of its executives, alleging the defendants violated the Texas Wiretap Act when a telephone conversation they had at work was intercepted and recorded.

Altaffer Jr. and Sophia Katherine Palat allege LANWT, Errol Summerlin, its chief executive officer, and Michael Prince, its manager of information technology, violated Texas Civil Practice & Remedies Code §123.001, et seq. by intentionally intercepting and recording a Sept. 3, 2009, telephone conversation they had with a co-worker in violation of LANWT policy and state law.
