Zurich Insurance Employee Who Sent Documents to His Gmail Is Sued For Misuse

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 3 – Zurich American Life Insurance Company sued its former employee Jon Nagel, claiming he took confidential information.  

 On May 3, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Jed S. Rakoff held an oral argument. Inner City Press covered it.

 Nagel's lawyer said this is really about her client emailing documents to his gmail account in order to print them, during a time that Zurich ordered its employees to be working from home. This, she said, was not a taking.   Judge Rakoff asked, sensibly, Then what would be? 

 The response was, withholding information from Zurich, or passing it to others. Why didn't Zurich give its employees printers? Why indeed.

There is also the question of diversity. Nagel's lawyer says he does not reside in Florida.

The case is Zurich American Life Insurance Company v. Nagel, 20-cv-11091 (Rakoff)
