Petrillo: Facebook. Social media. Can the defense attorney get access to my information?
Goldberg: Yes, they can. It is a transparent world out there, and the more you add to it, the more transparency you’ll get from it. Facebook is part of the discovery in a lot of the cases that we have now. And, I will tell people, “If you put it on Facebook, expect to see it in court three years from now.”
Petrillo: Very good.
Goldberg: And then they just make a choice as to what they want to do with that. We don’t expect people not to live their lives, and frankly, Facebook is part of all my kids’ lives, and my wife’s life, and my life to some extent. But, they can get part of it. There’s no privilege protecting somebody from that.
