A New York federal appeals court says it freed a former Goldman Sachs computer programmer from prison because a law used to convict and imprison him was misinterpreted.
The resident of North Caldwell, N.J., was freed in February, shortly after lawyers argued the case.
He was serving a sentence of more than eight years after a jury convicted him in December 2010 of stealing trade secrets.
