The so-called “Facebook” seems to be a bit exotic in the state sometimes known as “Nebraska”

March 28, 2014

From the “Nebraska Court of Appeals,” in In re Austin W. & Linda W. (Neb. Ct. App. Feb. 25, 2014):

After moving to Las Vegas, Jack claimed that he attempted to maintain contact with his children through his uncle’s “Facebook” account. However, according to Jack, 2 weeks after he moved, Jennifer learned that Jack had been using the uncle’s “Facebook” account and blocked the uncle from her and the children’s “Facebook” accounts.

As Jim Dedman (Abnormal Use) points out, what’s with all the scare quotes? (A sad case otherwise, by the way, as most “In re [Children's Names]” cases are.)
