insider tradingAnother insider-trading case has survived a motion to dismiss under the more stringent standards that the Second Circuit adopted last year in United States v. Newman.  On May 12, 2015, a federal District Court in Massachusetts declined to dismiss the indictments in United States v. McPhail and held that the Government had alleged sufficient facts showing that the initial wrongdoer-tipper had received a personal benefit and that the tippee had known of that benefit.
