Social networking websites have become part of the communication mainstream and generate a plethora of personal data. Certain sites allow open access by the public while others, such as Facebook, provide not only public pages, but also private pages with access restricted only to invited individuals. Over the last number of years, these sites have increasingly become a target of discovery demands in personal injury actions, compelling the courts to fashion procedures to determine the extent to which information on private pages must be disclosed. Recognizing that private pages may contain very personal information, the courts began to generate a body of case law, addressing the peculiar and expansive nature of these sites. Many of the decisions fashioned procedures for social media materials that departed somewhat from those applied to more traditional sources of personal information.

Lean Adviser Legal

Think Lean Daily Message

"In the trial world, I see an array of subtle, unsubtle and utterly ingenious strategies being devised by other lawyers to deploy on each other. As we shall see, I call these external strategies. The common theme, among the best external strategies, is that they are bespoke to the circumstances. One size does not fit all. A provocation strategy may work masterfully in some situations and backfire horribly in others"
