Submission + - Former Goldman Programmer's Conviction Overturned (

i_want_you_to_throw_ writes: "It appears the legal woes of Sergey Aleynikov, a former Goldman Sachs Group computer programmer, who had been convicted of stealing part of the Wall Street bank's high-frequency trading code, are now over. A federal appeals court overturned his conviction and recommended acquittal. Slashdot previously covered this story when he was sentenced to 97 months. It will be interesting to see their reasoning (an opinion is to be released) as well as what this may mean for other programmers developing high frequency trading code."
