Airline May Be Liable For Accessing Website

from the wiretaps-and-webpages dept

Hawaiian Airlines may be liable for visiting a web site. It may sound insane at first, but it actually makes some sense. Apparently, a pilot had posted a password protected site where he complained about the airline’s management. The airline then used another pilot’s username and password to access the site. The charge is that the airline broke federal wiretap and labor laws in doing so. The fact that they “snuck in” to the password protected site supports that claim.
