    its legal and was probably a discovered check on your part... ie you moved a piece in front of a bishop, rook, or queen, that was in line with your opponents king, to interpose with his check thus taking out his threat and creating your own.

    Why would it not be a legal move?

    This is known as a cross check

    I was playing a game the other day when my opponent put me in check. I simultainiously removed his threat by flipping the board over, making him eat a rook, and running from the room crying. That's called "bad sportsmanship".
