Cybercrime Under The CFAA: It Depends on the Jurisdiction

In a decision filed on April 10, 2012, the Ninth Circuit in United States of America v. Nosal, No. 10-10038 (9th Cir. 2012), put itself squarely in conflict with the Fifth, Eleventh and Seventh Circuits by holding that the district court properly dismissed a portion of the government's indictment against David Nosal charging him with a violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act ("CFAA"), 18 U.S.C. ยง 1030(a)(4) by knowingly and with intent to defraud accessing or exceeding access of a computer in contravention of a written company policy in order to obtain confidential company information to start a competing business.
