The Supreme Court heard oral argument for Salman v. Unites States, a case challenging the government’s power to prosecute people who profit from trading stocks on insider information. At issue was whether insider trading violates the law even if the person giving out corporate secrets did not receive anything of value in return or make any money on the trading if the inside trader was a close relative.

On December 6, 2016, the court unanimously upheld the insider trading conviction of Bassam Salman, who made nearly $1.2 million trading on information from his brother-in-law. Justices ruled that sharing corporate secrets with friends or relatives is illegal even if the insider giving the tips does not receive anything of value. close
