Handling Social Media, Email, and Other ESI in Tennessee - On-Demand
Webinar now available On-Demand.
- In 2014, the Tennessee Court of Appeals held that a compilation of text messages prepared in part for trial was not properly authenticated through witness testimony.
- In 2015, the Tennessee Court of Criminal Appeals ruled that there was more than sufficient circumstantial evidence to authenticate emails and their attachments when the defendant admitted that the Hotmail account belonged to him, the password was not “remembered,” and his email account was associated with his Facebook account and tied to his Blackberry.
- In 2012, the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee held that Facebook posts are not hearsay because they are made by the plaintiff (the party opponent).
The popularity of Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and similar social media technologies is exploding, so it should come as no surprise that they play an increasingly significant role in federal and state court. What is your strategy for using social media in your next trial? How do you discover this information? What are the rules on obtaining, handling, and admitting it?
Social media and other electronic evidence are most likely to be admitted when they are obtained properly, so having an effective plan for using electronically stored information (ESI) can position you for success in the courtroom. Let Tennessee attorney Russell Taber deliver tips and strategies for collecting and using social media and other electronic evidence at trial.
