Employers Receive Friendly Computer-Fraud-And-Abuse-Act Ruling From Louisiana Court

The U.S. Eastern District of Louisiana recently sided with employers in the on-going judicial debate over interpreting the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act “CFAA”. See Associated Pump & Supply Co., LLC v. Dupre, et al., No. 14-0009 E.D. La.. Associated Pump sued its former employee Kevin Dupre for violating CFAA during his alleged scheme to steal Associated Pump’s trade secrets. The complaint sets forth a now familiar scenario: shortly before resigning, Dupre used his work computer to violate a confidentiality agreement and known company policies by improperly accessing and obtaining Associated Pump’s confidential information to use while employed by Associated Pump’s competitor. These allegations, the Court held, state a viable CFAA claim.
