Judge: Judge: Mily Rodriguez Powell

Defendants moved to compel discovery of Plaintiffs’ social media accounts. Plaintiffs objected, alleging the discovery order was overbroad and not reasonably calculated to lead to the discovery of admissible evidence.


The Court granted Defendants’ discovery request. Content shared by Plaintiffs was clearly relevant to their claim of noneconomic damages, and Plaintiffs had no expectation of privacy in social media posts that could be freely copied and disseminated by others.
