Social Media and E-Discovery
My proposed topic would cover the discovery, use, and strategies for social media in civil litigation, from both sides of the litigation. The few cases that have been decided will be examined, as well as new strategies for discovering social media and obtaining it for use in litigation. All sources of “social media” will be analyzed in the context of litigation – facebook, twitter, pinterest, youtube, blogs. Consumer reviews, even golf handicap reporting. Additionally, there will be a focus upon various technologies for searching across social media and then working that into "traditional" ediscovery. Of course, things such as relevancy and privilege will be sub-topics, as well as ethical considerations. Finally, social media from a lawyer marketing standpoint will receive brief mention, including how it could affect jurors.
