OPINION
_________________________

CHAD A. READLER, Circuit Judge. Following the abrupt resignation of two employees, Royal Truck & Trailer discovered that the employees, prior to resigning, had accessed confidential company information from their company-issued computers and cell phones and then utilized the information in violation of company policy. Royal responded by filing suit against the employees, alleging violations of the federal Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) as well as Michigan law.

The conduct at issue might violate company policy, state law, perhaps even another federal law. But because Royal concedes that the employees were authorized to access the information in question, it has failed to satisfy the statutory requirements for stating a claim under the CFAA. Accordingly, we AFFIRM the district court’s judgment.
