Three stages of a continuing saga, dubbed the Battle for San Diego by Inside Higher Ed:
July 6, 2015: UC San Diego sues University of Southern California.
July 27, 2015: UCSD 1, USC 0.
As such, when a researcher moves out of a lab, he is not allowed to take his lab notebooks with him. The same should apply here - the difference is everything is digital. That said, since this is an ongoing project, it all comes down to what is specified in the research contract between UCSD and the funding agency. But this kind of litigation over "access to data" is rare.
