Abstract

The digital age is upon us, and the explosion of electronically stored information on computers, gadgets that go by all sorts of odd names (cell phones, PDAs, smartphones), and social networking sites, can often constitute a treasure trove for plaintiffs and defendants alike. This article primarily discusses several recent decisions where parties have sought information contained on social networking sites, but similar principles will likely apply in instances where the information sought is contained on an electronic device, or where the information sought pertains to the use of a particular device.
