Echoing the Texas Supreme Court’s skepticism about Wikipedia as a source in D Magazine Partners, LP v. Rosenthal, 529 S.W.3d 429 (Tex. 2017), the Fifth Circuit held that the Wayback Machine was not a proper subject of judicial notice “because a private internet archive falls short of being a source whose accuracy cannot reasonably be questioned as required by [Fed. R. Evid.] 201.” The Court offered suggestions for how Wayback Machine information could be authenticated, and noted a page on the Wayback site that discusses the use of its material as court evidence. Weinhoffer v. Davie Shoring Inc., No. 20-30568 (Jan. 20, 2022).
