California Electronic Discovery Act: Part Three

Part Three in a multi-part series on the topic.

In Part One of this series, we discussed California’s Electronic Discovery Act. Part Two discussed the importance in legal proceedings of electronic information from social media sites like Twitter and Facebook.

LinkedIn is another online social media site which has electronic information that you or your company may need to subpoena as evidence in a lawsuit.

LinkedIn bills itself as the “World’s Largest Professional Network” and is geared to professionals and job seekers. This professional focus distinguishes it in terms of substance and content from much of the electronic information published on Facebook and Twitter. Of course, businesses do make use of Facebook and Twitter, which can be important pieces of their overall marketing and communication strategy. But the social interaction that predominates on those sites is of a non-professional nature.
