In the last few months, numerous cases involving Facebook have resulted in amusing rulings that we would be remiss to ignore. On deck for this blog post we have three good ones:
- A judge issued an adverse ruling to a litigant who refused the judge’s friend request [Hint: Never refuse a judge’s friend request while the case is still pending!];
- A nurse was fired and denied unemployment benefits because of her colorful Facebook rant against her employer; and
- A school-district IT director in Georgia trolled through students’ Facebook pages and used a risqué student photo in connection with an internet safety slideshow (causing great embarrassment to the student and her mother).
