Can someone record a conversation with me without my consent?

Question Details:

We gave our roommate a 7 day letter to vacate the house. We were told this is legal by our county sheriff's eviction department since there is no written lease . He recorded a conversation this morning that I had with him without my consent or knowledge. He then placed the recording on his website on-line. Can he use this in court?
