Attorney Ian N. Friedman is currently defending a client who has been accused
by his previous employer, Eaton Corporation, of unleashing a dangerous
and malicious computer code with the intent of destroying company information.
Eaton Corporation is a power management company that provides solutions
to effectively and sustainably manage electrical, hydraulic, and mechanical
power. The defendant was hired by Eaton Corporation in November 2013 to
serve as a contract financial analyst. In April 2014, Attorney Friedman's
client applied for full-time positions at the company and was rejected
Eaton Corporation claims that on or around May 21, 2014, the man used his
access to the company's computer system to install a malicious code.
This code was allegedly attached to six financial spreadsheets and was
claimed to be able to cause significant damage to the company's computer network.
Attorney Friedman's client is said to have informed a co-worker of
the code, who then told the company. The man was arrested on November 14
th and released on a $20,000 bail to attend trial on January 12.
The Stow Sentry recently reported on the case, and Attorney Friedman told
the news outlet that "It is always unfortunate when someone comes
in contact with the criminal justice system. It is made more difficult
when that person by all accounts has lived their entire life as a law-abiding
and contributing member of society."
Attorney Friedman went on to say, "That is the case here… He
is a dedicated family man with a spotless record."
