Social networking and personal injury claims

Legal Technology has published an article, “Social Networks and Personal Injury” and it walks through some of the privacy issues involved for lawyers representing personal injury plaintiffs.

Hadn’t thought about this: the article claims that an adversary seeking to “friend” a plaintiff on Facebook is engaging in impermissable contact with the plaintiff.

Really?  The article ends claiming “Big Brother should not be watching us over the Internet.”  It not just Big Brother who is watching, its everyone, that is  the nature of social networking.   The question now is where will the line be drawn between the right to privacy and competing rights.
