Plaintiffs failed to allege a viable claim of trespass to chattels against defendants whom they alleged accessed and copied, without authority, computer files containing private legal and medical information about them and other workers compensation plaintiffs. Under Intel Corp. v. Hamidi (2003) 30 Cal.4th 1342, a trespass to chattels claim cannot be stated for computer hacking (either sending or copying information) in the absence of damage or disruption to the computer system allegedly trespassed against. Here, plaintiffs failed to allege injury to their copied computer files or to their property interest in those files. The copied files were not corrupted, and plaintiffs were still able to freely use the files as before. Trespass to chattels protects only the plaintiff’s interest in personal property, not his right to privacy.
