Ad Astra’s CFAA and CDAFA Claims Survive Demurrer in Law Firm Hacking Suit
Ad Astra is proud to represent Los Angeles based workers’ compensation law firm Reyes & Barsoum, LLP in a lawsuit involving claims that insurance defense law firm Knox Ricksen obtained thousands of privileged documents from Reyes & Barsoum’s third party cloud storage portal in violation of the CFAA, CDAFA, and Stored Communications Act (SCA). The case is filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court and has received some notoriety with a write up in Law 360 and The Daily Journal. Reyes & Barsoum successfully defeated Knox Ricksen’s demurrer to the computer crimes causes of action that Ad Astra is focused on. The next step is for Knox Ricksen to answer the verified first amended complaint.
