Shook Wins Critical Victory in Federal Arbitration Act Exemption Claim

Summary Judgment Win in Computer Fraud and Abuse Case

Shook obtained summary judgment for a client on claims for violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, breach of contract and civil conspiracy. The client, a Chicago-based trading firm, discovered suspicious connections to its virtual private network. Shook, with the help of forensics experts, discovered that the connections were made by former employees who planned to embed malware onto the network and steal proprietary data. We obtained an ex parte temporary restraining order, and rode along with U.S. Marshals on a raid of the lead defendant’s house, taking custody of computers and devices full of incriminating evidence.

The court granted summary judgment on all counts, and awarded our full ask of damages and attorneys’ fees.
