Wichita lawyer, engineer face trial for alleged plot
A federal judge has set a fall trial date for a Wichita lawyer and a computer software engineer accused of plotting cyberattacks on websites criticizing the attorney’s work.  

A court filing shows an Oct. 2 jury trial has been scheduled for Wichita lawyer Bradley Pistotnik and VIRAL Artificial Intelligence co-founder David Dorsett.  

The two men have pleaded not guilty to an indictment charging them with computer fraud and conspiracy. Pistotnik is also charged with making false statements to the FBI.  

The indictment alleges that Pistotnik and Dorsett are responsible for cyberattacks on Leagle.com, Ripoffreport.com and JaburgWilk.com in 2014 and 2015. The indictment also accuses Dorsett of filling website inboxes with threats. Court records say one email demands that a webpage be removed or the hackers will target advertisers. –AP
