As you might know, we here at Abnormal Use occasionally plan CLE programs for organizations of which we are members. Our editor, Jim Dedman, serves as the vice-chair of the Mecklenburg County Bar’s Civil Litigation Section. As such, he’s planned a program which might interest. No, no, it’s not another one of those programs about how to use the Internet to find incriminating impeachment materials. Rather, it’s about the practical aspects of subpoenaing social media companies and authenticating digital evidence. This is real world stuff you need to know for discovery and trial. The program features Keith Lee, the author of the Associate’s Mind blog and the “Social Media Subpoena Guide,” and Tim Flowers of the Computer Crime & Intellectual Property Section of the United States Department of Justice who will discuss authentication of digital evidence. It should be a doozy of an event and offer some real practical advice we don’t usually see in these types of seminars. If you’re in Charlotte on Thursday, April 20, join them!

Our tweet of the week comes from one of our firm’s partners who offers his views on the perils of a multi-jurisdictional practice.
So @JimDedman takes me to a NC BBQ joint. I ordered a side order of hash. Waitress: “What’s hash?” A different world up north.
