An ex-Goldman Sachs Group Inc. programmer who twice won reversal of guilty verdicts for taking the firm’s high-frequency trading code when he left for another job isn’t yet in the clear as prosecutors press an appeal.

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. will challenge the dismissal of charges against Sergey Aleynikov, whose saga helped inspire Michael Lewis’s “Flash Boys,” Joan Vollero, a spokeswoman for prosecutors, said Monday.
