Facebook Privacy Settings Don’t Matter?

Here is an article that mentions three recent civil cases where the defense was able to obtain evidence from private Facebook pages in order learn about the extent of injury in tort cases.  It goes on to mention that defense attorneys  are working around the Stored Communications Act by asking judges to compel plaintiffs to sign a consent form added to the subpoena sent to the Internet Service Providers.

I doubt this “work around” will go unscrutinized by appellate courts forever.  I look for better court guidance on this issue.
