Evidence of Plaintiff’s Late-Night Facebooking May Be Used Against Him

Another Facebook-as-evidence story, this time from Canada.

The plaintiff sought damages for personal injuries allegedly sustained in a motor-vehicle accident. He claimed that he suffered “debilitating fatigue” as a result of the accident, which precluded him from working, thus contributing to his damages.  The defendant sought production of the plaintiff’s home computer for forensic inspection.  The defendant sought to prove that the plaintiff spent hours, late at night, on his computer using Facebook.  The defendant contended that all of this late night Facebooking contributed to his alleged fatigue.
