What to Watch as High Court Takes on Computer Crime Law, Law360

December 03, 2020

Morgan Lewis partner Mark Krotoski spoke with Law360 about a cybersecurity and privacy case before the US Supreme Court that seeks to resolve a longstanding circuit split about the circumstances under which companies, organizations, and government agencies can enforce access restrictions on information and data under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. According to the article, the case, Van Buren v. United States, presents a challenge for the high court justices to decide between a broad or narrow construction of the statute. "The court will have to wrestle with the plain meaning of the statute when it defines exceeding authorized access," said Mark, who is a former federal cybercrime prosecutor and co-head of the firm’s privacy and cybersecurity practice.

Additional commentary from Mark can be found in Bloomberg Law, Reuters, and SC Magazine.
