Proceed With Caution

TheTennessee Judicial Ethics Committee recently weighed in on the issue whether judges "may utiize social media such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and MySpace."

The committee surveys the opinions of other jurisidictions on the subject and opines that a judge may do so but with caution.

A judge "must be constantly aware of ethical implications as they participate in social media and whether disclosure should be made...judges must decide whether the benefit and utility of paticipating in social media justify the attendant risks."
