Jurors trade accusations at ex-Goldman programmer trial


The trial of a former Goldman Sachs programmer charged with stealing the investment bank’s high-speed trading code took a bizarre twist on Wednesday.

The New York Times reports that after five days of deliberation, two jurors traded accusations of poisoning and slander.

The charges preoccupied court proceedings Wednesday morning, centred on an accusation that one juror tried to poison another.

The juror who believed she had been poisoned claimed to be so certain of her allegation that she told the court she’d gotten a blood test. Test results were not available by the end of the day.

The juror accused of infecting her food was a white male who responded to the complaint with charges that the female juror had threatened his career.
