Well, with each passing Saturday bringing the trial closer, each probably
looked more bleak.

Schwartz recently committed suicide over the incident.

Do we have any confirmation that the suicide was directly caused by
the legal issues?  Like a suicide note that says so?

His family made the statement:

http://articles.latimes.com/2013/jan/12/local/la-me-0113-aaron-swartz-20130113
.

Yes, that's what his *family* said.  What did *Aaron* say?

From the same article:

"On his blog, Swartz had written of his history of depression."

So it may have have been one contributing cause, but it's not a slam dunk
to conclude a direct causal relationship "court case therefor suicide". For
all we know, he's been having those thoughts for *years*, and Friday was
simply the day that he woke up and realized there was no way he could face
Saturday.
