Do A Judge's Facebook Friends Matter?

Above the Law, excerpts the following from the Chicago Sun Times:

"Kelly A. Klein, 40, now faces sentencing for aggravated battery of a child. She was found guilty in June by Judge Daniel Rozak.
Steven Becker, the lawyer Klein hired after her bench trial conviction, argued his client deserved a new trial partly because Rozak’s children were Facebook friends with members of the victim’s family.
He also claimed Rozak has a personal relationship with the victim’s grandfather and that the two families’ children went to Reed-Custer High School around the same time.
Rozak has denied knowing the family members who testified before him, and he said he doesn’t vet his adult children’s friends or Facebook pages."
