In a new entry in our Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) series, we take a look at the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1986 (CFAA), how exceeding "authorized access" to a computer doesn't appear to mean what it says, and just when it's totally fine for a police sergeant to sell the personal information of a stripper out of the law enforcement database.

You think you know where the story is going and then...BOOM, "Footnote 8" comes out of nowhere…in Virtual Legality.
