Don't be a dick

"Going to court? Seeking damages for injuries? Be careful what you post on Facebook (and, presumably, elsewhere). In the first case of its kind (analyzed in the Courtroom Strategy blog), a Suffolk County, NY Judge allowed a defendant in a personal injury lawsuit to obtain access to the Facebook profile of the plaintiff suing them, saying 'Plaintiff has no legitimate reasonable expectation of privacy.' You have been warned. I am not a lawyer, and this is not legal advice, but I would expect this to become common."
Be careful what you say, it will always come back to bite you on the ass!
Facebook For Dummies


  1. A good advice for many, but not likely to many of your readers. ;D

  2. Well I'm sure the few who do read will be thankful

  3. I was always paranoid about this kind of thing occurring, which is why I deleted my myspace and facebook accounts.
