You may remember that CBS News filed a lawsuit against a former Pittsburgh employee who swiped salary and other confidential information from her boss’s desk.
A federal judge has now ruled that CBS was correct in requesting that the employee at its Pittsburgh KDKA-TV station return all the confidential information she gathered from her boss’s desk and computer. The judge ordered her to return the information in five days, noting that by intentionally intercepting oral and written communications, she violated state and federal laws.
The employee taped phone conversations and read e-mails to build a racial discrimination case.
