The action arises from a dog attack on the plaintiff. This is a motion by the defendant requesting all MySpace and Facebook pages for the 3 plaintiffs, four weeks before trial and more than 5 years since the incident. Original discoveries took place 4 years ago, and no request was made at that time for photos or for MySpace documents (which by this point was in use by young people). Based on the closeness of the trial, and the fact that the plaintiff does not explain how the Facebook and MySpace photos would be relevant to the matters at issue, the court dismissed the motion.
