A petty Instagram post or a Twitter outburst may be a temporary relief borne out of frustration or hopelessness, but the consequences of venting online have routinely come back to haunt litigants in court.
In 1996, the R&B group 112 released the hit "Cupid" with the lyrics "Cupid doesn't lie. But you won't know unless you give it a try". Twenty-five years later, and practicing law for almost ten of those years, I realize that 112 was partially correct. Cupid doesn't lie, nonetheless, people do.
