The U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania recently considered whether information contained within a party's Facebook account is properly subject to discovery.

The case arose from a November 2008 car accident that, according to the plaintiff, caused severe injuries limiting his ability to sit, walk, stand, bend, stoop, push, pull and lift. Plaintiff specifically claimed that he could not drive for any period of time and was physically limited with regard to riding his bicycle or motorcycle. In addition, Plaintiff alleged that the accident caused decreased sociability and lack of intimacy.
