ABA Formal Opinion 466 - Social Media Use

Recently, the ABA has issued Formal Opinion 466 regarding the use of “electronic social media” (ESM) to obtain publicly accessible information from potential jurors' or litigant's social media presence. The ABA has determined that “passive lawyer review of a juror's website that is available without making an access request" may be reviewed by attorneys. In short, this means as long as you are not specifically “friend requesting” an individual to view privately posted information, you may review their social media presence as an investigative tool or to obtain profiles of prospective jurors for the purpose of voir dire. A Florida juror was arrested recently for posting on Facebook while on Jury Duty.
