POSTPONED: Social Media in Product Liability Litigation – Advantageous Use By Plaintiffs & Defense Strategies

Thursday, February 14, 2019 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


Description:

While defendants’ use of social media against plaintiffs is fairly well understood, plaintiffs’ use of social media against defendants has not received as much attention.  There are many on-line platforms where consumers/patients can voice their opinions about products and share their stories of alleged failures and injuries.  What duty does a manufacturer have to track, preserve, investigate or report on-line complaints?  In this program you will hear from attorneys on ways in which counsel for consumers/patients can utilize social media in litigation and the defensive strategies manufacturers’ counsel can employ.
