Judge recuses herself from Anonymous case over previous hacking incident

A federal judge has recused herself from a case involving hacktivist group Anonymous by virtue of indirectly being one of its former victims. Chief U.S. District Judge Patti Saris was slated to presume over the arraignment of accused hospital hacker Martin Gottesfeld on Wednesday in Boston, but announced she had stepped down in a three-sentence explanation filed in court the day before.
