Civil Litigators are well aware that there is an increasing trend in Social Media Discovery litigation in the Pennsylvania courts (and nationwide).
Insurance defense counsel Daniel E. Cummins of the Scranton law firm of Foley, Cognetti, Comerford, Cimini & Cummins recently had an opportunity to draft the below Motion and a supporting Brief on a Motion to Compel a Plaintiff to produce his Facebook login information. The discovery issue resolved without the Motion and Brief having to be actually presented the motion in court.
The Motion, Brief, and proposed Order are published here as possible forms for others to utilized when faced with similar Social Media Discovery issues.
