Using Wearable Technology & Social Media Offensively in Litigation
Florida Defense Lawyers Association
Florida counsel Traci McKee and Chicago associate Bryan Pasciak presented a webinar on July 16, 2020, for the Florida Defense Lawyers Association titled “Using Wearable Technology & Social Media Offensively in Litigation.” Advances in technology, communications and data storage create difficult and expensive discovery issues for companies defending complex litigation. These changes, however, also create an opportunity for defendants to obtain case-altering information in offensive discovery. Traci and Bryan discussed the discoverability, accessibility and use of plaintiffs’ personal devices, social media and cloud-based networks — including ethical boundaries, challenges in obtaining information, strategies for using data and admissibility concerns.
