Clifford R. Atlas and Ravindra K. Shaw of Jackson Lewis’s New York office have written on the firm’s website about a recent decision from the Second Circuit Court of Appeals applying the narrow definition of “exceeds authorized access” under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. The case is United States v. Valle, 2015 U.S. App. LEXIS 21028 (2d Cir. Dec. 3, 2015).
The authors note that with a growing split in the circuits on this issue, “the likelihood of U.S. Supreme Court review increases.”
