In a broader context we are often asked whether posted online information can be deleted after it is seen or sought by the other party. Emails, Facebook posts, Twitter tweets, Instagram postings and similar social media comments and postings may well become evidence in court. Deleting or destroying postings, emails and other online postings may well be construed as the destruction of evidence by a judge. Cases are begining to arise in courts around the country, as in the case of Painter v. Atwood, from Nevada. You may be sanctioned, or worse, by a court of law if you choose to delete online content.
Once you are involved in any type of litigation, it is important to know what your rights are with regard to the information you share online. It is wise to talk with an expericed attorney before making decisions about your media accounts that may impede your success in court.
