Social Media as Evidence in Lawsuits
Are you aware that your social media profile may be subject to disclosure in a lawsuit? Social media content is playing an ever increasing role in litigation and courts across the country have admitted social media as evidence in lawsuits. It is now being called the new surveillance video of this generation. If your social media profile is public, it is open to scrutiny by the opposing party in the case. However, even if your social media profile is private, it may be admitted as evidence if the Court believes the information contained in that profile is relevant and necessary to the case. Always be mindful of your audience and the content of your posts. If you have further questions regarding the use of social media evidence in legal matters, please contact us at Kerrick Bachert, PSC at 270-782-8160. We would love to help.
