A short survey of the case law related to production of information from Facebook. The plaintiff had testified on her discoveries that her physical activities were limited by her injuries, but stated she was unsure if her Facebook pictures would show her engaged in activities she had sworn were affected by her injuries. Access to her Facebook photographs is limited, and defendant sought an order of production of any pictures showing her engaged in any of these activities since the accident. The court dismissed the plaintiff's argument that her privacy concerns should be sufficient to prevent production.
