Blocking Constituents from Facebook Page Violates First Amendment–Davison v. Randall

The Chair of Loudoun County Board of Supervisors blocked a constituent on her official Facebook page. While the block was temporary, Davison, the constituent, filed a lawsuit, and prevailed after a bench trial. The Fourth Circuit affirms the main points. The court first says Davison has standing to pursue his claims. He was subject to past enforcement, and the Chair has not “disavowed” future enforcement. The Chair also challenged whether she had acted under color of law in administering the Ch...

"Facebook's '10 Year Challenge' Is Just a Harmless Meme — Right?"

Writes Kate O'Neil in Wired.Imagine that you wanted to train a facial recognition algorithm on age-related characteristics, and, more specifically, on age progression (e.g. how people are likely to look as they get older). Ideally, you'd want a broad and rigorous data set with lots of people's pictures. It would help if you knew they were taken a fixed number of years apart—say, 10 years.Sure, you could mine Facebook for profile pictures and look at posting dates or EXIF data. But that whole set...

LawNext Episode 25: Using AI to Enhance Virtual Receptionists, with Smith.ai

 What do you get if you combine a virtual receptionist service with artificial intelligence? Spoiler alert: The answer is not robots answering the phone. Rather, the folks at Smith.ai say the combination results in a superior receptionist service for both live calls and website chat. By incorporating AI, they say, their service continually gets smarter as it comes to know your practice and your clients. On this episode of LawNext, I speak with Smith.ai’s Justin Maxwell, cofounder and chief ...

Here, here: the Swedish online love army who take on the trolls

#Jagärhär (#Iamhere) aims to battle abuse in online threads and jumps to defend those on receiving endWhen a young woman with rainbow hair and a reputation for hostility towards sexual predators won a Swedish lawyer of the year award late last year, the online reaction came in two waves.The first was unpleasant, a torrent of bile from people who objected to Linnéa Claeson’s looks, her feminist politics, her gender, her youth and her instagram account @assholesonline.

What's good for the goose? "Reverse" LGBTQ discrimination

If, like me, you believe that Title VII's definition of "sex" includes sexual orientation and gender identity, then what do you do with the claim of a heterosexual employee who claims discrimination because of her anti-LGBTQ views? Bonnie O'Daniel claims that her employer, Industrial Service Solutions, fired her because she posted to her personal Facebook page a photo of a man in a dress at a Target store, and commented on his ability to use the women's restroom or dressing room. O'Daniel furth...

An Early Prediction for 2019? Perhaps Dusting Off Your Reduction in Force Guidance

You do a blog long enough and everything comes full circle.  Back in January 2008, I took out my crystal ball and suggested that reductions in force (RIFs) and lawsuits would soon follow. We all know what happened next. The economy crashed and discrimination claims at the EEOC peaked at their highest levels in more than 20 years.   So here we are 11 years later.  A whole generation of HR professionals have never experienced a significant downturn.  Are we headed there again in 2019? I’ll leave t...

Louisiana court: Online anonymity doesn’t shield lawyers from ethical obligations

But, like many other time-honored traditions, even water cooler conversations have been affected by technology. Certainly these in-office discussions still occur, but much of the day-to-day discours...

Older people more likely to share fake news on Facebook, study finds

Researchers suggest over-65s may lack skills to determine veracity of online newsOlder people are almost four times more likely to have shared fake news on Facebook than the younger generation, according to research published in the journal Science.On average, American Facebook users over 65 shared nearly seven times as many articles from fake news domains as those aged between 18 and 29, researchers from NYU and Princeton found in the study, which also concluded sharing such false content was “...

AT&T is finally revealing its new tools to reinvent the way TV ads are sold — but it needs other networks to play along

AT&T is introducing new data tools that allow advertisers to pull together set-top box data, stats from Turner and data from Xandr, its ad and analytics division. Xandr wants other networks and publishers to adopt its technology, including Open A.P., a consortium between Viacom, Turner, NBCUniversal and Fox that lets advertisers create cross-network targeting segments. However, both NBCUniversal and Viacom have their own data tools for advertisers. Buyers say they want to see networks work tog...

LawNext Episode 24: Making Legal Research Better, with Judicata Founder Itai Gurari

With Judicata, Itai Gurari believes he has built a better legal research platform. A lawyer and computer scientist, his approach to designing a legal research engine was to first “map the legal genome” — that is, map the law with extreme accuracy and granularity. The result is a research engine that returns the best results the fastest, he says. Gurari and his company also built Clerk, a tool that analyzes the strengths and weaknesses of legal briefs — like moneyball for motions, he says. “...

A mysterious Facebook phenomenon — some people get a left-handed thumb's-up emoji and others get a right-handed thumb's-up emoji.

Observed and commented on in a Facebook thread (started by my son John) about the likelihood of Presidents to be left-handed:What's going on at Facebook? Perhaps it's just an innocuous device to get people talking or to test if anyone notices, but I think it's very strange to have 2 different ways of displaying the most important emoji (the one used to signify a "like") and to have a right/left distinction (which is so meaningful in political analysis). I feel actively lured in conspiracy thinki...

Ninth Lawsuit Against Social Media Providers for “Materially Supporting Terrorists” Fails–Clayborn v. Twitter

This is the ninth different case where a court concludes that social media services aren’t liable for providing “material support” to terrorists. This particular litigation involves the San Bernardino shooting, but the underlying incident doesn’t matter much. Instead, the court is governed by the Ninth Circuit’s Fields v. Twitter case, which held that social media services aren’t proximate causes of terrorist attacks. That ruling pretty much dictates this dismissal. So apologies for my light com...

Google Photos Defeats Privacy Lawsuit Over Face Scans–Rivera v. Google

This case provides a glimpse into the legacy of the Supreme Court’s Spokeo decision on the injury-in-fact requirements for Article III standing in federal court. When it was issued, I called Spokeo a “jurisprudential clusterfuck.” Indeed, the subsequent caselaw has been messy–including this case! Google Photos automatically creates “face templates” from uploaded photos and then lets the uploading user sort the photos by face. The court assumes, without deciding, that the face templates and asso...

"In the flickering light of the campfire, you can’t do much that requires keen eyesight like sewing or making tools, but you can chat away across the flickering flames."

"This is nicely illustrated by what South African San Bushmen talk about around their campfires. When anthropologist Polly Wiesner listened in on their conversations, she found that daytime conversations typically consisted of boring factual topics and discussions of trading agreements with neighbours, but evening conversations were invariably about social topics or involved storytelling and jokes....

More than 40 months after death sentencing, lawyers for Boston bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev file their 1000+-page appellate brief with First Circuit

As reported in this local article, headlined "Lawyers: Tsarnaev ‘should not have been tried in Boston’," a very long appellate brief has been filed in a very high-profile federal capital case.  A federal jury handed down Dzhokhar Tsarnaev death sentence way back in May 2015, a full month before Donald Trump had even announced he was running for President.  But now, as Prez Trump heads into the second half of his term, Tsarnaev's team of lawyers has fully briefed his complaints about his trial an...

Human censorship and legal bloggers

There’s going to come a day when there will be a need to police the speech of legal bloggers. Not across the Internet in entirety, but by a company or organization hosting or syndicating legal blogs. Could be LexBlog. Censorship of legal bloggers has not been a big topic of concern among the legal blogosphere. Sadly, most legal bloggers are afraid to offend anyone, though we have seen a few get bounced off Twitter for a bit, I suspect out of machines doing automatic takedowns.  With lega...
