Ex-Goldman programmer will face jury

American courtroom

The criminal case against Sergey Aleynikov — the former Goldman Sachs programmer who was convicted in federal court, then acquitted, only to be charged again in state court — will soon head to a jury after Aleynikov’s last-ditch effort to toss out the case came up short.

The New York Times reports that in a ruling on Monday in State Supreme Court in Manhattan, the judge overseeing the weekslong case rejected Aleynikov’s request for a dismissal, handing a victory to prosecutors who accused Aleynikov of stealing secret source code from Goldman’s computers.

The ruling by Justice Daniel P. Conviser will now prolong a resolution to the long-running tale, which began nearly six years ago when Aleynikov was arrested on the Fourth of July holiday weekend at Newark Liberty International Airport.
