Case Study

The court, following a narrower interpretation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA), stated that an employer did not have a claim against an employee under the CFAA when the employee misused access to the employer’s computer that he had been granted because the employee did not “exceed authorized access” or act “without authorization” as required under the CFAA.
