Thompson Coe attorney, Jennifer Aufricht, has been asked to speak at DRI's Damages Seminar on March 24, 2011 at Bally's Las Vegas. Her presentation, Social Networking—Using It to Meet People and Win Cases, will cover popular social networking sites that can be a treasure trove of information for investigation of a plaintiff or witness, as well as a source of impeachment that can be a powerful weapon for the savvy defense counsel. That is, if you know how it works, how to get that information and what to do with it when you get it. Attendees will hear detailed descriptions of the methods required to obtain information from these sites, so that relevant information can be obtained in an admissible form, and learn about the various options for utilizing this information in the defense of a claim or suit.
