Hacker group Anonymous claimed to have taken over the website of the U.S. Sentencing Commission in protest of attempts by federal officials to prosecute open-data campaigner Aaron Swartz. Swartz killed himself earlier this month. And in a YouTube video Anonymous said he did so because he was faced with "an impossible choice" after federal prosecutors charged him in connection with copying academic journal articles from an online repository. The video was reportedly posted on the website of the sentencing commission, but as of Saturday morning the site appeared to be offline.

Harry Swartz has traveled the world, looking for the perfect strawberry - one that will change strawberry fields forever. He wants a firm berry that will travel well, provide a tasty blend of flavor and sweetness to compete with California's best, and dwell on an erect stalk suitable for machine harvesting. Now the University of Maryland plant scientist, who has studied what makes a quality strawberry since the 1970s, thinks he has found the ideal plant in a Spanish field - or at least its genetic progenitor.

Changing times have claimed yet another Baltimore institution -- Mano Swartz, the 103-year-old family furriers.In an era when much of merchandizing has concentrated in the hands of faceless conglomerates directed from far-away cities, the history of this local company reads like a veritable period piece. It involves a 22-year-old Hungarian forest ranger named Mano Swartz, who is drawn to America by the gold rush of the 1880s, but ends of up in New York learning the fur trade. In the process he marries the sister of the Saks brothers (as in Saks Fifth Avenue)

HAGERSTOWN -- Until three weeks ago, the last time June E. Dunning had been in the hospital was in 1951, when she gave birth to her daughter, Corinne. That changed Sept. 2 after Dunning, 86, ate spinach from a bag and became severely ill. She entered a hospital for the first time in her daughter's memory. She died battling an E. coli infection 11 days later. Yesterday, standing in the living room of the Hagerstown house she shared with her mother, Corinne Swartz said that while evidence might never prove conclusively that Dunning was killed by the strain of bacteria that has sickened people nationwide in recent weeks, her family believes that her death was caused by eating contaminated spinach.

Former Tyco International chief executive L. Dennis Kozlowski stared ahead and sat motionless yesterday when a New York judge sentenced him to eight to 25 years in prison for siphoning hundreds of millions from the company. The same was true for his co-defendant Mark Swartz, the company's one-time financial chief. It was a departure from the emotional display at the recent sentencing of Bernard L. Ebbers, the former WorldCom CEO convicted for his part in an $11 billion accounting fraud who buried his head in his hands to hide his tears.

NEW YORK - On Monday morning, L. Dennis Kozlowski, the former chief executive of Tyco International, will learn his fate. Kozlowski, who was convicted of grand larceny, falsifying business records, securities fraud and other charges, is to be sentenced in New York State Supreme Court in Manhattan and, unless he is granted bail, could be whisked off to Rikers Island to be processed. The 58-year-old former executive faces a prison sentence as long as 30 years. While recent lengthy sentences for white-collar crimes have been hailed by some as desperately needed deterrents after a deluge of corporate scandals, the sentencing of Kozlowski, comes at a time when a number of lawyers, including former prosecutors, are questioning whether such sentences are justified.

NEW YORK - The judge in the trial of L. Dennis Kozlowski and Mark H. Swartz, two former Tyco International Ltd. executives accused of looting the company, rejected a prosecution request yesterday that he seek a partial verdict in the case. Assistant District Attorney Owen Heimer requested that New York State Supreme Court Justice Michael J. Obus ask the jury whether they had reached a verdict on some of the counts. The request followed a note Thursday in which the jury indicated that it had reached verdicts on some counts but wondered whether it must deliver unanimous verdicts on all of them.
