Judge Rejects Dismissal Against Goldman Sachs Programmer

The criminal case against Sergey Aleynikov — the former Goldman Sachs programmer who was convicted in federal court, then acquitted, only to be charged again in state court — will soon head to a jury after Mr. Aleynikov’s last-ditch effort to toss out the case came up short. In a ruling in State Supreme Court in Manhattan, the judge overseeing the weekslong case rejected Mr. Aleynikov’s request for a dismissal, handing a victory to prosecutors who accused Mr. Aleynikov of stealing secret source code from Goldman’s computers.
