What are the laws and or regulations about "possession" of employee/company email after an employee is terminated?

Long story short, I run a successful music blog and one of our top writers / journalists evidently took a job at another magazine and is trying to take other writers with him.
Because of these actions, I'd hate to think of what he could or would do with access to the hundreds of industry contacts he has stored in his email.
So because he is no longer working with/for us, am I legally allowed to suspend access to his email account, effectively barring him from accessing these contacts?
