Submission + - SPAM: Carmen Ortiz's former office lies to Swartz's judge about next hacktivism case?

Danngggg writes: Regular readers of Slashdot will remember Martin “MartyG” Gottesfeld, alleged hacktivist behind the 2014 DDoS against Boston Children’s Hospital over its apparently brutal (mis)treatment of then-14-year-old patient Justina Pelletier. Recently, federal prosecutors from former U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz’s office in Boston filed a motion before same federal judge who presided over the tragic prosecution of Aaron Swartz – Nathaniel M. Gorton. Despite features from Rolling Stone, Daily Wire and others
containing detailed account of abuse, including from Justina herself, Ortiz’s former underlings are disputing that Pelletier’s human rights were violated and they are seeking to prevent Gottesfeld’s defense from introducing evidence that Justina was being “tortured” at his upcoming trial. Thickening the plot, it turns out that Judge Gorton’s 2012 financial disclosure places him as a member of the corporation at the Home for Little Wanderers, a 501(c)3 which accepted $50,000 from Boston Children’s Hospital in September 2015, a mere 5 months before Gottesfeld was arrested. Read more at Daily Wire:

On February 28, the prosecution in the Martin Gottesfeld case submitted a “motion in limine,” asking Federal Judge Nathaniel M. Gorton to disallow one of Gottesfeld’s primary defenses – that he was reacting in defense of Justina Pelletier, who he believed was being “tortured.”
