CASE ENTRY

Walker v. Coffey

Pennsylvania gov’t investigators use an invalid subpoena to get a Penn State employee’s work emails. She sues them, alleging a violation of a 1980s anti-hacking law called the Stored Communications Act. Third Circuit: No dice! Penn State turned over the emails voluntarily; nobody broke into a computer. Dismissal affirmed.
