Plaintiff’s Postings on MySpace Negate Invasion of Privacy Claim

22 02 2009

“People who live in glass houses should dress in the basement.” That’s an old kid’s joke (if you remember) which came to mind while reading the opinion in Sandler v. Calcagni, 2008 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 54374 (D. Me. July 16, 2008). Kids joke or no, it suggests the reasonable principle that people who want their private lives to remain private should not be posting private information on a publicly accessible social networking site.

Posting personal information on social networking sites has become more problematic as job recruiters, and now attorneys conducting discovery or vetting jury pools, are looking to these sites for revealing information about potential hires, adversaries, witnesses and prospective jurors.
