Eleventh Circuit updates its social media civil instruction

The Eleventh Circuit jury instruction Web site has updated posted "February 2020 jury instructions." The only change is to the social media discussion in Instruction 1.1 (General Preliminary Instructions - Criminal Cases):

In this age of technology, I want to emphasize that in addition to not talking face-to-face with anyone about the case, you must not communicate with anyone about the case by any other means. This includes e-mails, text messages, phone calls, and the Internet, including social-networking websites and apps such as Facebook, MySpace Instagram, Snapchat, YouTube, and Twitter. You may not use any similar technology of social media, even if I have not specifically mentioned it here.

You must not provide any information about the case to anyone by any means whatsoever, and that includes posting information about the case, or what you are doing in the case, on any device or Internet site, including blogs, chat rooms, social websites, or any other means.
