4:00pm-5:15pm: Social Media and Criminal and Civil Investigations
The quandary of whether or not to add someone to your social network perplexes many people, but most people do not realize that the "friend" could be an F.B.I. agent, an informer, an investigator or an opposing attorney covertly seeking information. What kind of social media evidence is “out there” and how can it be found and used? Where is the line between an “honest” investigation and unethical deception? What statutes apply and what are the ethical rules?
- How law enforcement uses social media in the investigation and prosecution of crimes.
- Use of social media by investigators and attorneys in civil, administrative and criminal proceedings.
- Exploring the recent decisions regarding company's access to social networks.

Dear NYSCEF User: Section 202.5-b(d)(3)(iii), regarding documents filed as secure in NYSCEF, was recently repealed by the Administrative Board of the Courts following a 60-day public comment period. Pursuant to Administrative Order, documents may no longer be e-filed in secure status in NYSCEF. It is the sole responsibility of counsel and the parties to be aware of and to comply with existing laws requiring non-disclosure of confidential personal information contained in any document e-filed in NYSCEF. For example, General Business Law ? 399-ddd(6) and Public Officers Law ? 96-a address the confidentiality of social security account numbers. Documents previously e-filed as secure in NYSCEF will continue to retain their secure status unless otherwise directed by the court. Online access to those documents will remain restricted to counsel of record and self-represented parties in the case, but public inspection of the documents will be available on computer terminals at the courthouse or County Clerk?s Office.The Administrative Order is posted on the NYSCEF website on the Rules and Legislation page.For questions about the content of this email or other information about E-Filing, please contact the NYSCEF Resource Center at (646) 386-3033 or Efile@nycourts.gov
