The case of David Edward Boyles v. Dillard’s, Inc. from Florida’s First District Court of Appeal is a mixed bag of issues involving Daubert, evidence, voir dire, closing argument, and alleged attorney misconduct during trial.
Notable, from a legal/technology standpoint, is this
somewhat cryptic final sentences from the Opinion about counsel’s Facebook activities:
“We hasten to add that plaintiff’s counsel did not exit these proceedings with clean hands either. We decline to enter into a discussion of ‘who started it’ but we note that… postings by plaintiff’s counsel on his own public Facebook page — which included commentary on the proceedings and the evidence and the derogatory references to one of defendant’s attorneys — were well outside the bounds of professional conduct to which members of our profession are expected to adhere.”
