WT Wins: Court Issues Permanent Injunction in DTSA and CFAA Case
Published: October 25, 2021
Shauna Correia and Jessica Corpuz represented our client in federal court in a case under the Defend Trade Secrets Act and the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. The client is a major supplier of electronic package storage lockers throughout North America. The defendant was a former employee who had refused to return company-owned computers and copies of our client’s sensitive data after he quit. Worse, he had threatened to leak the company’s confidential information, and boasted of his ability to remotely access and interfere with the company’s software. The court granted our request for a temporary restraining order and turnover order for the stolen computers and data. Forensic investigation of the recovered computers revealed additional evidence supporting our client’s claims, and the defendant stipulated to a judgment. The U.S. District Court for the Central District issued a consent judgment and permanent injunction in favor of our client on October 21, 2021.
