Indiana Court rules Facebook information is discoverable in litigation

There was a recent order from an Indiana Federal Court regarding whether information from social networking sites (SNS) is discoverable in litigation. While this is not a family law case, the reasoning the order could equally apply to a family law case, especially if custody is at issue.

The entire order is linked here.

One side was arguing that production of all of the Facebook postings, comments and "tags" was overly broad, harassing and an unreasonable infringement on privacy. But, the Court held that the information was discoverable and noted that “Facebook is not used as a means by which
account holders carry on monologues with themselves.” If this topic interests you I encourage you to read the order.
