Wait, judges are going to require parties to provide evidence to back up the claims they make in court now? What is this world coming to?

Plaintiffs claim they're disabled because they cannot do various things.  Plaintiff posts on Facebook showing themselves doing the very things they say they cannot do.  Defence lawyers request discovery of their Facebook posts to prove that they're not as disabled as they claim.  Common practice.

Gyrfalcon: Conrod claims the injuries she sustained in that accident have left her unable to work and have compromised her recreational and social activities, including the amount of time she spends on Facebook.

Wow, that sounds perilously close to frivolous-lawsuit territory to me; but maybe Canadia's laws are looser when it comes to that sort of thing. CAN you even sue for inability to sit around wasting time as much as you used to? Because if so, I'll totally go for it the next slip&fall I sustain.


Well, I feel that anyone using FB in an attempted leverage point is a loser and should be dismissed.

FTFA: Instead, he argued she must provide records of her Facebook usage - including log-in and log-out information - to see if it supports her claim that the accident has reduced her ability to concentrate online.

First of all, it's possible to remain logged in all the time, which I do because I'm really goddamn lazy. Secondly, wtf does ability to concentrate have to do with it? I'd think 'ability to remain seated in a computer chair' would be far more relevant. I can spend hours online just derping around (oh hi, Fark), but there are some days where my back just aches incessantly and I have to go lie down.
