How Social Media Helped My Case In Baghdad

I’ve received a lot of questions regarding my latest trip to Iraq (my second in 3 months).

So, here are answers to a few important ones.

How did I get the case? An old friend referred it to me. He called me on the phone.

How did Facebook, Google+, Twitter, etc. help me to prepare for the case? They didn’t. I also don’t talk about the particulars on any SM, email, or internet forum. That’s stupid. All anyone else knew is that I was traveling to Baghdad for a case. I did have some questions, and I discussed those will colleagues via telephone.

How did I utilize the cloud for my legal needs? Aside from a few sparse clouds in the sky over Baghdad, I have no other knowledge of clouds involved in this case.

Did my client utilize SM to his advantage? If so, how? This two-part question deserves a two-part answer. First, to my knowledge, my client did not use SM. Second, had I knowledge that he utilized SM for case purposes, I would’ve kicked the shit out of him.

How did I incorporate technology during the case? In court, I had a MacBook Air and iPad. They sat on counsel table. They were never used. They were never necessary. Why? I did this thing called case preparation. Crazy, I know. However, at night, I did attempt to check scores on ESPN via a cruddy wireless connection.

Aside from this, SM was absolutely critical to the case.

  1. Couldn’t agree with you more on this. Abstinence, with respect to free cloud apps and social media, is the best way to keep close control of any client info.
