Fourth Circuit Holds That Investigatory And Remedial Expenses May Be Recovered As "Economic Damages" In Computer Fraud and Abuse Act Cases

From our sister blog, the North Carolina Appellate Blog, a story about a new Fourth Circuit case permitting investigatory and remedial expenses as “economic damages” in cases under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act.

The case A.V. v. iParadigms, LLC held that a claimant bringing a civil action under the federal Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA), 18 U.S.C. 1030(g), for unauthorized computer access may recover consequential damages such as investigatory and remedial expenses.
