If You Want Something to Remain Private, Don’t Post it on Social Media

Here’s a link to a brief summary of a January 7, 2015 opinion from Florida’s 4th District Court of Appeals upholding the trial court’s order that a personal injury plaintiff was required to produce photographs that she had posted on her social media account.   The appellate court found that once the photographs were posted, they were no longer protected from disclosure under Florida law.  So…think before you post!    

Thanks to our Las Vegas colleagues Robin Perkins and Casey Perkins for originally publishing the summary as a Snell & Wilmer Legal Alert.
