by Joshua Briones. American Bar Association. 2013.
109 pages.

Written by attorneys who specialize in social media legal practice, this title is for civil litigators and aims to help you understand the use of social media as evidence in a civil trial. The book begins with an introduction to social media -- an "evidentiary gold mine for impeaching witnesses and undermining a party's litigation position" -- then moves on to topics such as the retrieval, retention, and admissibility of social media data. It also discusses related issues such as social media in relation to juries, jury selection, real-time "live blogging" of trials, and how social media may lead to a mistrial.
