My Amicus Brief in Van Buren

A submission for the Supreme Court's big CFAA case.

|The Volokh Conspiracy |

As regular readers know, I've been writing, blogging, and litigating about the scope of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) for over twenty years.  The Supreme Court is hearing a big CFAA case this fall, Van Buren v. United States.  I figured this was an important case to chime in on, so today I submitted this amicus brief, on my own behalf, in the case.

Bonus: It discusses an old Volokh Conspiracy blog post and covers one of my favorite 1980s movies.
