RETIRED FEDERAL JUDGE JOINS IN CRITICISM OF PROSECUTOR OVER SWARTZ CASE: “A prominent retired federal judge is adding to the chorus of criticism of U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz following the suicide of Aaron Swartz last Friday. . . . For 17 years, Nancy Gertner sat as a federal judge here in Boston. She says she was troubled by much of what she learned and saw from the bench before leaving in 2011. And she says Ortiz should not have prosecuted Swartz.”
