Social Networks Impact on E-Discovery February 24, 2011

Posted by Attorney Jonathan Groth in Milwaukee Personal Injury Attorney, Personal Injury Law, Wisconsin Auto Accidents.

I don’t have much to add to this article by Judge Sankovitz, Professor Grenig and William Gleisner.  When it comes to discovery issues they are certainly the experts in the field.  I recommend you read this article if you do any sort of litigation in Wisconsin.

In fact, social networking has so permeated the culture that competent lawyers cannot afford to ignore its customs and the trove of discoverable information to be found where it takes place. Just as lawyers last century needed to master the intricacies of email, so too this century with social networking. As one commentator puts it: “It should now be a matter of professional competence for attorneys to take the time to investigate social networking sites. You must pan for gold where the vein lies – and today, the mother lode is often online.”
