Alleged Russian Hacker Committed to Feds for Mental Evaluation

(Bloomberg) -- A federal judge in San Francisco committed Yevgeniy Nikulin to the custody of the Bureau of Prisons for a psychological examination to determine if he is fit to face trial for hacking LinkedIn Corp. in 2012. Judge William Alsup vacated Nikulin’s January trial date and ordered an evaluation after Nikulin declined to cooperate with a private examiner hired by his attorneys in San Francisco.
