Goldman Programmer Wins Right to Appeal Conviction

Nearly 3 months after New York State courts rejected Sergey Aleynikov’s request to have Goldman Sachs pay his $7 million in legal fees, and then reinstated his May 2015 conviction [See Financialish, 1/25/17], the former Goldman Sachs programmer learned today that NYS's highest court agreed to review his reinstated conviction for stealing the firm's programming source code.
Aleynikov may appeal because “questions of law are involved which ought to be reviewed,” the Court of Appeals said in an order dated April 20.
During Aleynikov's 8-year legal odyssey, he was ultimately cleared of federal charges that he improperly copied computer source code. However, his conviction on state criminal charges was reinstated in January 2017, and it is this conviction that Aleynikov is appealing.
