That was exactly my thinking as well? If it’s open source and has no “configuration” information there then just walk away clean and start up from scratch.

Why would anyone take open source software from work?  It's available anytime you need it on the Internet. He could have just downloaded it the first day at his new job.

Here is an article that states that a computer science professor from NYU testified that it wasn't any secret code he stole and just opensource software that he worked on while at Goldman.
