Another Dauphin County Order Compelling Production of Virtual Surveillance (Facebook Info, etc.) Before Deposition of Plaintiff is Completed
The Dauphin County Court of Common Pleas has issued another decision compelling a defendant to produce virtual surveillance, i.e. online surveillance of a plaintiff's social media activity on Facebook, Instagram, etc, prior to the deposition of the plaintiff. The Order only was handed down in the case of Appleby v. Erie Ins. Exchange, No. 2016-CV-2431 (C.P. Dauph. Co. Sept. 9, 2016 Dowling, J.).
In the Order the court again also held that any ordinary surveillance completed of the Plaintiff need not be produced until after the deposition was completed.

I send thanks to Attorney Robert F. Claraval of Claraval Law Office in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania for bringing this decision to my attention.
