Russian hacker Yevgeny Nikulin is being held in a San Francisco-area jail for breaking into the websites of Linkedin and other companies in 2012 and 2013. A trial in the closely watched case was set for next January. But now there are questions about Nikulin’s mental health, and a federal judge has decided to postpone the trial.
