Goldberg Segalla partner Michael E. Appelbaum was profiled in a Modern Counsel feature focusing on his “sharp investigative eye” and tenacity at trial.
The profile highlighted a “Hollywood” trial Mike handled, where he managed to introduce social media evidence to discredit the plaintiff’s key witness.
“There is relatively little case law available on the use of social media, especially on its use in the courtroom, Mike told Modern Counsel. “The challenge is how we use the information at depositions and at trial. Just one week before my trial, one of my partners attempted to use the same type of evidence in another court, and he was denied outright. Judges and attorneys are still trying to figure this out.”
