Goldman programmer releasedA New York judge has thrown out the conviction of former Goldman Sachs Group Inc (GS.N) programmer Sergey Aleynikov, saying prosecutors failed to prove that he broke an "obscure" law by copying some of the bank's high-frequency trading code.

Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Daniel Conviser issued his decision on Monday, overturning the verdict in May by a jury who found Aleynikov guilty of "unlawful use of secret scientific material," a violation of a rarely used 1967 law.
