Social Media Investigations Proving Vital for Litigators


Researching social media and online networks is becoming a more imperative step for attorneys in the litigation process, partially because of the sheer amount of information online. This digital information is proving invaluable in numerous situations for litigators. Attorneys can save time and prevent wasted resources by investigating witnesses, defendants, plaintiffs, and juries. By starting with some due diligence, attorneys are able to make more informed decisions by uncovering false events or statements and save themselves time, money and effort.

One of the emerging uses of social media investigations is jury selection, which has garnered stringent ethical consideration. However, according to the National Trial Lawyers of America, “social media jury investigations – when performed properly – are not just ethical, they are a critical part of a trial lawyer’s responsibility as a zealous advocate.” Additionally, the American Bar Association has issued Formal Opinion 466 stating that social media investigations of potential jurors is ethical as long as there is no direct contact with these jurors.

Using social media and online networking research in jury selection can reduce the possibility of stealth jurors who have their own biases and motivations for working on a case. Investigating a potential juror member’s online presence will alert trial lawyers to those who may misrepresent him- or herself. According to National Trial Lawyers (NTL), these instances are not limited to high profile cases but could also include jurors who have issues with the defendant or attorneys. Additional information about potential jurors also helps with the framing of voir dire questions and can help trial lawyers act with confidence and speed when selecting a jury. Cause strikes are also more likely to be granted and are substantiated more easily.

But jury selection is not the only area of law for the social media investigations. Investigations of fraudulent disability, workers’ compensation, and social security claims. Utah’s Attorney General, John Swallow, reported that, in social media investigations conducted by the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) and Social Security Administration, for every dollar spent on research they were able to save the taxpayers ten. The investigation undertaken in Utah uncovered photographic evidence of individuals lying about disabilities online.

In many cases, a thorough perusal of an individual’s social media will reveal pertinent information for any litigator. Investing in classes or training opportunities to improve these skills is often beneficial for completing cases efficiently and quickly, while other options include hiring in-house researchers or consulting with a team of researchers.
