A right-wing group known for producing "sting" videos on Democratic politicians, private liberal groups and journalists around the country is suing in federal court to overturn an Oregon law that prohibits people from secretly recording others without their knowledge.

Project Veritas and a sister organization argue in a complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Portland Monday that they are eager to launch several investigative reporting projects in Oregon but "are restrained by an overbroad statute prohibiting most secret and open recording of oral communications."

The lawsuit names Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum and Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt as respondents but does not question any specific actions they have taken or link them to the recording law, beyond their roles prosecuting violations of state laws.
