Reuters: Sergey strikes back

14 08 2009

The case of Sergey Aleynikov, the former Goldman Sachs programmer charged with stealing some of the top secret code to the investment bank’s high-frequency trading program, is going on the offensive.

UPDATE: Just got a copy of Goldman’s motion and it appears much of what Aleynikov wants are personnel records regarding ”performance reviews by peers and superiors, complaints, employee progress reports, training history records” etc.

Goldman says Aleynikov’s request should be denied because the “crux of the complaint is an allegation of theft, not an employment or wage dispute.”

UPDATE 2.0: Goldman smackdown, courtesy of Judge Crotty, who gave a pretty hard time to Goldman’s lawyer in court. Aleynikov got access to his personnel file, as requested, and Goldman got nothing. I guess Goldman doesn’t win all the time.
