Course Description

This program was recorded on June 7, 2021

This recorded CLE webinar discusses how to properly preserve and social media evidence in litigation. The ubiquitous nature of social media has made it an unrivaled source of evidence, leading it to play a key role in countless cases. Businesses of every size can be affected by social media – both in the duty to preserve social media content and in the desire to access relevant social media evidence in litigation.

Data residing on social media platforms is subject to the same duty to preserve as other types of electronically stored information (ESI). The duty to preserve is triggered when a party reasonably foresees that evidence may be relevant to issues in litigation. All evidence in a party’s “possession, custody, or control” is subject to the duty to preserve. Evidence generally is considered to be within a party’s “control” when the party has the legal authority or practical ability to access it.

This presentation is presented by the Global Cyber Institute and Lexeprint. It is presented by Hon. Leo Gordon of the United States Court of International Trade, Dan Regard of iDiscovery Solutions, Elizabeth Koenig of International Litigation Services, and Melissa Clark of FeganScott.
