Social Media as Evidence: How to Obtain It, Interpret It, and Use It in Court

May 11, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

You are invited to a special event! Please join us over Zoom from 12-1pm on May 11, 2021, for Social Media as Evidence: How to Obtain It, Interpret It, and Use It in Court. The growing field of social media records presents complex challenges for practitioners on both sides of civil and criminal litigation. How can parties obtain social media records? How should the records be interpreted? What challenges arise in seeking admission of social media exhibits in court, and what objections can be made?

Join us for a program featuring expert Attorney Chris Madsen, a California attorney who is an expert in the field. Mr. Madsen is the former Assistant General Counsel and Head of Global Law Enforcement, Safety, and Security at Yahoo! Inc.; former managing director of ZG Subpoena Solutions, which assists tech companies in responding to subpoenas and search warrants; and a former attorney with DOJ. Mr. Madsen will provide practical, actionable background and information on how practitioners can obtain and interpret social media data — including private messages, profile information, account creation dates, friend networks, photos, and more. The discussion will include some evidentiary issues to consider for seeking to admit or object to the admission of such materials in court.

This will be a remote lunchtime program from 12-1pm on May 11. Click on the Zoom link below to join.
