From the E-Discovery Law Review Blog:
A Pennsylvania court recently decided that information posted by a party on their personal Facebook page is discoverable. Largent v. Reed, Case No. 2009-1823 (C.P. Franklin Nov. 8, 2011) arose out of a chain-reaction automobile accident in which the plaintiffs, who were riding a motorcycle, were hit by a minivan that was hit by the defendant. Plaintiffs claimed serious and permanent physical and mental injuries, pain, and suffering as a result of the accident.
During the deposition of one of the plaintiffs, defense counsel discovered that the plaintiff/deponent had a Facebook profile that she regularly accessed. The defendant then accessed Plaintiff’s public profile and saw posts that contradicted her claims of serious injury.
