Electronically Stored Information

In News

Tim Hutchinson represented an out-of-state client who alleged that a former employee had improperly converted electronically stored information belonging to the employer. The federal court certified to the Arkansas Supreme Court the question whether, under Arkansas’s tort of conversion, intangible property such as electronic data, standing alone and not deemed a trade secret, can be converted. RMP and its co-counsel, argued that electronically stored data should be treated with the same regard as tangible property. The Supreme Court agreed, holding that, under Arkansas law, intangible property such as electronic data, standing alone and not deemed a trade secret, can be converted in the same manner as tangible property.
