Caselaw Precedent

2006 Cases

  • Simon v. State

    632 S.E.2d 723 (2006)

    Defendant appeals his conviction for child molestation, and argued, among other things, that the trial court erred in finding that his custodial statement was freely and voluntarily given, admitting e-mail messages that were not properly authenticated. The court noted its opinion that “e-mail offers unique opportunities for fabrication”, but noted that it would be held to the same standards of authentication as other similar evidence, which it found in this case was sufficient.

  • United States v. Safavian

    435 F.Supp. 36, 41 (D.D.C. 2006)

    Finding that basic principles of authentication remain the same, but noting that emails and other forms of electronic communication present their own opportunities for false claims of authorship.

  • St. Luke’s Cataract Laser Institute v. Sanderson

    No 8:06-CV-223-T-MSS (M.D. Fla. May 12, 2006)

    In which the court entered an order denying plaintiff’s motion to admit Internet Archive website printouts. In so doing, the court found that the plaintiff had not met the necessary requirements for authentication.

  • Internet Specialties W., Inc. v. ISPWest

    2006 WL 4568796 (2006)

    In which the court ruled: “Defendant’s argument, that [web pages] could be ‘authenticated’ by the person who went to the website and printed out the home page, is unavailing.”
