Married Young: The Status of Child Marriage in Tennessee
March 16, 2018

With the mass shooting on February 14, 2018 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and the debate over gun control currently led by our nation’s children, the issue of the safety and well-being of our nation’s children has been at the forefront of our collective concern and media attention.

STEP AWAY FROM THE COMPUTER - SOCIAL MEDIA IN LITIGATION
February 12, 2013

In today's information age, it is not new advice that content posted on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Linkedin and other online forums is generally open to the world to see. In an October, 2012 blog post, Facebook claimed to have one billion users. Postings on these social media websites, many of which are updated on a daily if not hourly basis, are a modern, electronic form of communication in a highly public forum. Social media is proving to be a hot source for evidence in litigation. When these communications become relevant in litigation, they are, to the consternation of users, discoverable regardless of the privacy policy of the social media website. Even more importantly, these communications are discoverable even though the user or poster believed that the posting would be confined to the private social media page or account. These postings contain a wealth of personal information, and litigators can use these resources to find evidence helpful to prosecute or defend a claim, to impeach a witness, or even to assist in the selection of a juror.
