Weingand v. Harland Financial Solutions, C 11 3109 EMC (N.D. Cal.; June 19, 2012)

Weingand involves claims brought by an employee, and proposed counterclaims brought by the employer against the employee. Nor surprisingly, the employer tried to assert claims under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (and California Penal Code section 502, a state anti-hacking statute). The court grants the employer’s motion for leave to amend, finding that the counterclaims would survive a 12(b)(6) motion.
