Privacy, social media, and legal ethics have been all the rage for the past couple years, with their being a bit of a cottage industry now dedicated to telling lawyers how to keep e-mails private and what not to say on their blogs and Facebook posts. But that's all kinda dull. Of course, most of the fun territory has already been explored so much that it's became passe. An angry e-mail accidentally gets the Reply All treatment? tl;dr. Lawyer has skanky pictures on Facebook? Plz, we were there when those were taken.

We want to explore new territory, and thankfully social media provides a nice way to do it. One of the key features of social media is that it has a sort of currency. On Facebook getting people to click Like or post comments shows your other friends where you stand in the social pecking order. Reddit has upvotes. Twitter has followers and retweets.

We all know that lawyers (and non-lawyers) giving money to judges is a big no-no and can have all sorts of consequences. But what if we strayed from real currency and just used ethereal social currency?

...Dunno. But let's find out!

 

If you have a Twitter account, we want you to follow Judge Stephen Dillard (@JudgeDillard) of the Georgia Court of Appeals. Retweet his tweets, and recommend that your followers follow him.

Phase Two will involve getting into some sort of legal trouble in Georgia. No plans for that yet, but we got our eyes on Uga.
