Publisher: New Jersey Law Journal
March 6, 2017
Day Pitney Author(s) Mark Salah Morgan Michael L. Fialkoff

Mark Salah Morgan, Maureen C. Pavely and Michael L. Fialkoff authored an article, "Authenticating Social Media Evidence in NJ Courts," which was published by the New Jersey Law Journal. In the article, they discuss the standards in New Jersey courts for authenticating social media evidence under state and federal Evidence Rule 901. They note that "in New Jersey, there is no unique hurdle to authenticating social media evidence." They explain that the "low burden" to authenticate social media evidence in New Jersey "is in stark contrast to several states which have turned the authentication of social media evidence into a time-consuming odyssey."
