Rhode Island Supreme Court issues ruling in Facebook firing

The Rhode Island Supreme Court recently issued a verdict four to one in favor of a Warwick resident who lost his job after posting a negative opinion of his boss on Facebook. According to the court, the man is eligible to receive unemployment insurance due to the fact that the state could not show that the man's Facebook post was connected to his workplace.
