Ex-Goldman programmer gets a break


A Manhattan judge on Tuesday denied a move by Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance to use an expert witness against former Goldman Sachs computer programmer Sergey Aleynikov.

The New York Post reports that prosecutors wanted to use Spencer Lynch, a forensics expert, against Aleynikov, who is accused of illegally copying Goldman’s 'secret sauce' — its computer codes used in high-frequency trading.

Lynch was to be called as a regular witness — but Justice Daniel Conviser, with 'extraordinary reluctance', denied the move.

The rejection is another setback for the state after the judge told Assistant District Attorney Daniel Holmes he 'screwed this up' in being unprepared for trial.
