He hid out in South America for five years – the length of the statute of limitations generally applicable to most United States federal criminal cases.

<![CDATA[Insider Trading Among Family Members and the Limits of 'Newman']]> http://www.maglaw.com/publications/articles/00432 http://www.maglaw.com/publications/articles/00432 In the closely-followed case of United States v.

The Stewart case was a family drama, as the government accused an investment banker of tipping his father about impending deals, and the defendant argued that his father betrayed a son’s trust by trading based on their discussions. In our latest article, we analyze the Stewart case and suggest that Newman has not changed all that much in tipper/tippee cases involving family members.
