+ - Judge Orders Divorcing Couple To Swap Facebook/Dat->

Submitted by nonprofiteer
nonprofiteer (1906180) writes "A Connecticut judge issued an order telling divorce attorneys for Stephen and Courtney Gallion to swap passwords for their clients' Facebook and dating site accounts. The husband's lawyer asked for access to the wife's account to try to find evidence that she didn't want responsibility for caring for their two children so that he could get full custody. This is quite an overreach when it comes to discovery — usually discovery is limited to making you turn over "responsive" material, not letting opposing counsel shuffle through anything they want to determine what's relevant. It's a huge violation of privacy, but apparently judges are increasingly forcing litigants to turn over their social networking passwords, especially in personal injury cases."
