Discovery of Injury Victim’s Social Networking Sites

There is another good blog post from the Drug and Device Law Blog this time regarding electronic discovery with respect to on-line diaries and the social networking like Facebook and MySpace. I have not had this issue arise with one of our clients but it is only a matter of time. Anything on there inconsistent with plaintiff’s complaints is going to be used against them (as it should in most cases).

Speaking of which, you can find my Facebook profile here and my Linkedin profile here. If you are on Facebook or Linkedin, add me to your list of friends.

  • Thank you for the refernce to the e-discovery article on the Drug and Device Law Blog. It was helpful in one of my blog posts. We just recently had a case in the Seattle news where Chrysler lawyers subpoenaed a badly crippled 21 year old girl’s MySpace records. It appears social network sites like MySpace are being check by defense lawyers as a matter of course now. E-discovery is here to stay and plaintiff attorneys need to be prepared for such requested aimed at their clients.
