A note to any employers out there considering legal action against former employees:  before you send a letter threatening to sue your former employees for allegedly possessing company information that is only accessible to current employees, which they should have given back when they left the company, you should probably make sure that they are, in fact, former employees.  When 2 minutes of research reveals that they are actually current employees whose contracts do not expire until September, and you have taken no action to fire them, it makes it awfully easy to rebut your allegation.
