I am not aware of any kind of cause of action that could be correctly asserted against you under these facts. Your company is entitled to limit access to its website in whatever means it chooses.
You say that they are trying to sue you, have you been contacted by their attorneys?
Yes we have. This is a weird situation because this company is claiming we are a company that we are not. They haven't bothered to contact us to ask who owned the company, they simply sent us a cease and desist telling us to shut down operations, then began calling our trunk lines digging for information.
they have sent unsolicited mail to our clients who from what i can figure out left that answering service and came to us.
After the Cease and Desist was when they began spending a lot of time checking all of the URL's associated with our website, and since we do send Protected Health Information to Doctors via Email and SMS so at that point I blocked the IP's
It was a week Later We got a summons stating that they are suing this company but the names of the persons listed are not members of this LLC, never have been.
They feel this company is not legally operating. (We have the licenses and LLC if they bother to check the state website). nothing in there has any validity, but the lawyer that filed claims that we blocked them specifically to interfere with them checking into our company
