This is the Court of Appeals decision denying Leon Walker's interlocutory appeal from Oakland Circuit Judge Martha Anderson's denial of his motion to quash the information in his "unauthorized access" criminal prosecution. The case has received lots of media attention due to the broad scope of the criminal statute, and because the complaining witness in the case is Walker's former wife. Walker believed his wife was having an affair with one of her earlier spouses, so he allegedly hacked into her computer to find out.
Interestingly, Walker was at one time employed by Oakland County as a computer technician.
This case will produce further opinions and orders of note.
