Dresser-Rand Co. v. Jones, 2013 WL 3810859 (E.D. Penn. July 23, 2013)

Dresser-Rand Co. v. Jones, 2013 WL 3810859 (E.D. Penn. July 23, 2013) (3rd Cir)

The Third Circuit has not yet ruled on whether it will adopt the broad (Johns / Rodriguez) or narrow (Nosal / WEC Carolina Energy) interpretation of access, but the courts in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania have generally adopted the narrow interpretation. “Under the narrow view, an employee given access to a work computer is authorized to access that computer regardless of his or her intent to misuse information and any policies that regulate the use of information.”
