Floyd becomes Roman Polanski.
An International warrant, as opposed to a French one.
Anybody, (other than Polish) know how this works?

Flandis a hacker?

Conspiracy perhaps as he likely knows who did hack, but Floyd??

I'd sure like to see the evidence the French Judge is looking at.

Dr. Arnie Baker hired a hacker to break into LNDD and steal documents. Baker then modified the documents and distributed them in an attempt to discredit the lab.

The French wanted FLandis to answer questions months ago. At that time the possibility of an arrest warrant was threatened. FLandis should have taken the opportunity to deal with the problem last year.

I believe that any country that has signed multi/bi-lateral treaties that regulate arrests, can, if they choose to, make an arrest when he is within their jurisdiction, and, after judicial review, choose to extradite him.

It wouldn't surprise me if the US doesn't do anything, and if they already make an arrest, he won't get extradited, because the charges are not serious enough to warrant extradition...

PS> the warrant could have been issued because he (and Baker?) refused to show up for trial after he was subpoenaed.

You are probably right that nothing will be done in the US. There is more than enough on our plates than to deal with this relatively low-level case. More than anything it pretty much means that Floyd won't be racing in any EU countries until he clears this up. Personally it sounds like he blew them off and now is going to reap the consequences.

Baker's a bit of a nut-case to be sure but if what you write is common knowledge then you'd think the French would have summoned him as well (or maybe they did but Baker's name does not create a headline).

I don't know if RR-Murcia offered him a one year contract and that he was holding out for two, but I'd guess he'd grab at a one year contract, now.

The warrant may not get enforced but it has effectively put an end to any European aspirations.
His career remains in the toilet.

They did summon Arnie when the original case was filed. You might be correct about his name not drawing headlines.

Default What a Mess

I still remember how the Landis camp hyped the hacking story. In my gut I suspected foul play. It didn't really seem realistic at the time though. But at this point it seems within the overall character of the defense to have done something like this.

Ugly stuff.
