Aaron Swartz Case: US DOJ Drops All Pending Charges Against The JSTOR Liberator, Days After His Suicide

Days after hactivist and programmer Aaron Swartz committed suicide in his Brooklyn apartment on Friday, the U.S. Department of Justice formally dismissed all pending charges against the 26-year-old co-founder of Reddit and Demand Progress on Monday evening.

Swartz, who was being investigated for illegally tapping and downloading millions of scholarly papers from the digital journal archive JSTOR while visiting the library at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), potentially faced decades behind bars and a $1 million fine.http://www.ibtimes.com/aaron-swartz-case-us-doj-drops-all-pending-charges-against-jstor-liberator-days-after-his-suicide
