BELMONT, Calif., Sept. 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- SunEdison, Inc. (NYSE: SUNE), the largest global renewable energy development company, today announced that the Northern District of California has granted the company's motion to dismiss charges filed by SunPower Corp., with leave to amend.
In June of this year, SunPower filed a lawsuit against SunEdison and certain SunEdison employees who previously worked for SunPower. The complaint alleged that former employees, among other things, violated the federal Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) by breaching SunPower's computer use policies and misappropriating SunPower's information. SunEdison moved to dismiss the claims arising under the CFAA, SunPower's only basis for federal jurisdiction. The court granted the motion, ruling that SunPower failed to adequately plead a CFAA claim.
