Judicial Notice of Internet Sources
Okay, a little off topic but we’re again spotted in the wild. The Spring 2012 edition of the American Bar Association’s Litigation News features an article written by yours truly on courts taking judicial notice of internet-sourced facts. The article notes that courts have increasingly taken judicial notice — or conclusively accepted certain facts without first-hand evidence — of information available on the internet. This is not something that will be going away but the transient nature of information available on the internet carries significant implications.
