Re: A question about Betazoids

I am not sure if it has ever been stated, but I have to believe that Federation ethics and law would frown heavily on using mind reading in a legal proceeding. Integrity of personhood and due process seems very important in their system. I imaging in general they would see reading someone's mind without their permission as a gross violation.
