Attorneys for New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft have fired back against prosecutors who are appealing a decision that tossed key evidence in his case.

In May, a judge ruled the state could not use secretly-recorded videos from inside the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter, where it's alleged Kraft solicited prostitution.

Kraft denies the allegations.

Now, his attorneys have responded to the appeal, saying "Government could run roughshod over privacy and constitutional rights" while avoiding scrutiny, and "If the state wins the appeal, everyone loses, not just the accused."

No hearing date has been set.
