Tucker & Ludin Attorney Eric Ludin Announces Successful Social Media Litigation

Eric E. Ludin of Tucker & Ludin is proud to announce their recent successful litigation achievement. Ludin argued instant messaging and Facebook posts are discoverable in litigation and communication that occurs through Facebook is not subject to the normal expectation of privacy. "The law regarding the use of social media discovery in litigated cases is relatively new and still in flux," said Ludin.

In this case, Ludin's client was suing a former employee for breach of a noncompete and nonsolicitation employment agreement. The business had reason to believe the former employee was asking current employees to steal confidential records, such as vendor and customer lists. The former employee used Facebook messaging as the main method of communication with the employees.

According to the counsel for the former employee, the other party went overboard attempting to seek all Facebook messaging and posts. Additionally, they argued the ex-employee was involved in closed "adult-only" groups that would harm participants' reputations if their membership was revealed as public knowledge.

Ludin successfully litigated this case, getting the court to grant the motion to allow discovery of all Facebook material related to the former employee's account. However, the court did limit the order by directing lawyers to review what was there and keep all information confidential. The order also stated any material accessed by the attorneys would be reviewed in the judge's chambers to determine if the confidential status should be modified.
