Hedge-fund trader convicted of insider-trading seeks new trial

Michael Kimelman says prosecutors lacked evidence

Michael Kimelman, a former hedge-fund trader who was convicted of conspiracy and two counts of securities fraud in June, is seeking a new trial. Kimelman claims prosecutors had no evidence that he participated in illegal insider-trading in 3Com Corp.

According to prosecutors, Kimelman received inside information from Zvi Goffer, who supposedly received tips from two former Ropes & Gray lawyers. Goffer, Goffer’s brother and Kimelman were all convicted earlier this summer for their roles in the alleged scheme.
