Lee Wolosky was quoted in Global Data Review on the growing number of hacking victims who are turning to U.S. courts as a way to respond to hackers. Wolosky, who represented Republican fundraiser Elliott Broidy after Broidy’s emails were hacked by Qatar, said there are two main benets of turning to civil litigation after being hacked: money and control.
“When you turn over your evidence to a law enforcement agency, you don’t control the investigation, you don’t control the output, you don’t control public disclosure. You don’t control anything,” he said. But with an affirmative line of attack, “You control how the investigation is conducted, you may be able to control disclosure of it to the public.”
