Need To Know If This Is Illegal

So we recently did a job in Boston MA at an apartment building. The owner wanted 2 cat6 per floor to the electric closet on each floor. So there was existing unused 2" emt that ran from the first floor upto the roof out to the boiler room. So what we did was on each floor cut the conduit and added and aluminum emt C-fitting. We then drilled a hole out of the back of the C-fitting and put a one way grommet in and pulled our cables out to each closet. This was the first time we have ever done anything like this. It was kind of a custom job. Anyways after we were done they had another contractor come in to do work and saw what we did and said it was illegal because once we drilled the holes it was no longer UL listed. So now the customer is trying to have us Come rerun the cables at our cost. Please any advice on this would help allot thanks.

You did void the listing.

Was the job permitted? Have an inspector look at it, if they pass it all is good.

Replace the C's with T's.
