Now raising intellectual capital

Sergey strikes back

-

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.

Aleynikov has filed a subpoena on his former employer, seeking access to some information–mainly his personnel file. And Goldman has responded by filing a motion in federal court to quash the subpoena. Goldman filed its motion on Aug. 6, a source familiar with the matter says.

A hearing on Goldman’s motion to put the kibosh on Aleynikov’s request for documents will be heard Monday afternoon beofre Judge Paul Crotty.

The hearing on Aleynikov’s motion comes as the attorney for the former Goldman employee and federal prosecutors continue to work towards trying to reach a potential plea deal in the case.
