The SEC’s complaint charges Morano, a former employee of UTi Worldwide, Inc., with insider trading based on material nonpublic information he learned about the company’s impending acquisition by DSV Air & Sea Holdings A/V. The SEC’s complaint alleges that Morano obtained more than $38,000 in illegal profits by purchasing shares of UTi prior to the acquisition announcement.

Collins Adopts Favorite Tactic Of Indicted Lawmakers In Insider Trading Case (TalkingPointsMemo.com)
Rep. Chris Collins (R-NY) was well aware, when he allegedly engaged in insider trading in 2017, that he was under scrutiny from the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE). He also acknowledges that he and his staff have used personal email addresses for congressional business. Collins’ lawyers say that’s all helpful to his case. Citing the U.S. Constitution’s “Speech or Debate” Clause, which protects legislative business from being used in criminal proceedings, they argued in court Friday that they should be able to see any OCE material shown to the grand jury that indicted the congressman. Certain other communications may be privileged too, they said.
