CLE - Exhibit F(acebook): The Impact of Social Media on Civil Litigation

  • Boston Bar Association 16 Beacon Street Boston, MA, 02108 United States (map)

As society becomes increasingly more active and involved in social media, it is essential to understand how it affects legal cases. Our experienced panelists will explore:

What constitutes “social media evidence” and how such evidence has been used in cases involving business disputes.
How companies can preserve social media evidence consistent with legal preservation requirements and steps for obtaining such evidence in discovery (including third-party discovery).
How companies can authenticate and introduce social media evidence at trial or arbitration and, conversely, how they can block or limit the use of such evidence.
