Based on decades of experience studying jurors’ reactions to legal disputes, particularly in the medical arena, two social psychologists will present an overview of the use of social media in defending medical liability cases. Topics include using social media research in helping avoid surprises for defendants, how to uncover helpful information about plaintiffs, and how to identify potential jurors who should be removed for cause or are good candidates to be challenged peremptorily. The presentation will include examples from actual cases as well as ethical considerations and common mistakes to avoid.
