Ex-Goldman programmer's fate back with jury after two jurors exit

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 04/30/2015 - 05:43
By Brendan Pierson NEW YORK (Reuters) - A former Goldman Sachs computer programmer accused of stealing its trading code may yet see his criminal case come to an end after the judge on Wednesday removed two jurors after a conflict between the two marred deliberations. A male juror and a female juror left the state Supreme Court in Manhattan on the orders of Justice Daniel Conviser shortly after 2 p.m. on the fifth full day of deliberations. The 10 remaining jurors spent the rest of the afternoon weighing whether Sergey Aleynikov broke New York state law when he copied Goldman computer code in June 2009, as he prepared to leave the bank for a high-frequency trading startup in Chicago. A decision to convict must be unanimous, and the judge said letting 10 jurors proceed amounted to "uncharted territory." The three alternate jurors were also discharged after the attorneys agreed to go ahead with 10.

Gyrocopter flight exposed Washington defense flaws: lawmakers

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 04/30/2015 - 05:42
By Lindsay Dunsmuir WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Security officials struggled to explain to U.S. lawmakers on Wednesday how a man could fly a small, unauthorized aircraft straight into Washington, D.C., and land it on the west lawn of the Capitol as police and tourists looked on. The April 15 gyrocopter flight of Douglas Hughes, perhaps the most amazing of recent security lapses, showed the city's defenses are inadequate, especially against small aircraft, said lawmakers at a House of Representatives committee hearing. It's about drones, as well ... I find the lack of planning on how to respond to gyrocopters and drones surprising and disappointing," said Democratic Representative Matt Cartwright. He was apprehended upon landing and eventually allowed to return to Florida, where he is now in home detention.
