New Westlaw Citation for Recent Social Media Discovery Case

Tort Talkers may recall that I recently highlighted the case of McMillen v. Hummingbird Speedway, Inc., PICS No. 10-3174 (Jefferson Co. September 9, 2010, Foradora, P.J.), in which Jefferson County President Judge Foradora held that where a person’s social networking sites contain information that may be relevant to the claims or defenses presented in a personal injury lawsuit, access to those sites during discovery should be freely granted.

I have just learned that this case has been given a Westlaw citation. Here it is: 2010 WL 4403285 (Jefferson Co. 2010).

I thank Attorney James Beck of the Philadelphia law firm of Dechert, LLP for securing and providing this citation from Westlaw. Consider visiting Attorney Beck's blog, the Drug and Device Law Blog at http://druganddevicelaw.blogspot.com/ , which, in my opinion, is the best of its kind on that topic.
