Computer Hacking & Insurance Coverage

Our client was accused of “hacking” into a former employee’s personal e-mail account. The EPLI carrier had appointed defense counsel, but then advised that it would expect a large contribution from the insured toward any settlement. I got involved to assist the defense counsel which included selecting the only expert who was utilized, outlining the summary judgment issues and finding legal authority which eviscerated the damage claims.
