Class No. 3 (Due Process and the Burden of Proof)

In our previous class, we discussed the law and ethics of Facemash, a short-lived website Mark Zuckerberg created in the fall of ’03—a few months before he launched the beta version of Facebook. This week, we will re-enact Zuckerberg’s “Ad Board” hearing and consider what defenses he could’ve asserted on his own behalf. In addition, we will also focus on the procedural side of law, in particular, due process and the burden of proof. That is, when someone is accused of wrongdoing like hacking or theft, who has the burden of proof and what process is owed to the accused?
