LOS ANGELES (CN) - A federal judge found Tien Shiah not guilty of stealing, copying and possessing trade secrets he obtained while working for Broadcom. U.S. District Judge David Carter wrote that he is "concerned" about the "clear lack of diligence on the Government's part in filing this case." Judge Carter found that the FBI accepted Broadcom's "investigation" of Shiah rather than investigating him itself. "When incarceration is at stake, the investigation should be conducted by law enforcement, not law enforcement and a private corporation together."
