CFAA Bullies

The ruling is preliminary, but Judge Chen's ruling in hiQ v. LinkedIn calls out LinkedIn as a Computer Fraud and Abuse Act bully. SCOTUS is unlikely to grant certiorari in US v. Nosal, where the scope of the CFAA is at issue in the criminal context. Civil litigants ought to care too, as this case demonstrates. We await better guidance from the Courts of Appeals; in the meantime -- fight the bullies.
