We often cover social media aspects pertinent to government contracting here on the blog. Recently, however, Michelle Sherman of Sheppard Mullin’s Los Angeles office posted an article that may be relevant to contractors on the Social Media Law Update blog. In her posting, Michelle discusses how companies may be able to use the widespread and immediate dissemination of corporate news online to defeat the “original source” prong of a whistleblower action. For a comprehensive analysis of the issue, please click here.
