I am part of small seasonal business in New York State. We had managers who placed our client data base on their personal computer so that they could handle inquiries during the off season while we looked for their replacements (they had decided to quit to pursue other endeavors). These managers took off with the data base and did not return phone calls or emails. It took us months to retrieve and access the data we needed which also caused (and is still causing) several problems during our operations this year. Currently we know where they are. Suing them would be taking blood from a turnip. Three questions: Do we have criminal recourse? Which court? What is the statute of limitations?
