Roeser Tanner & Graham successfully defended a healthcare solutions IT company against a 10-count complaint in the Northern District of Illinois.

Darrell Graham represented the company against multiple high-risk claims including tortious interference, breach of fiduciary duty and violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act in both an initial and an amended complaint.

The plaintiff alleged that the defendant used its access to the plaintiff’s technology under false pretenses to assist a co-defendant in terminating a contract with the plaintiff.

Graham argued that the plaintiff failed to allege an injury or a scheme to defraud and that many of the claims did not fit within the Computer Fraud and Abuse’s definition of loss. Judge Robert M. Dow, Jr. granted the motion to dismiss all of the claims against the client.
