WASHINGTON Oct 5 U.S. Supreme Court justices
hearing a closely watched insider trading case indicated on
Wednesday they could issue a ruling that would make it easier
for prosecutors to pursue such charges against hedge fund
managers and other traders.
Several justices hearing arguments in the case of Illinois
man Bassam Salman appeared critical of his position that he
could not be convicted for trading on tips about deals involving
clients of Citigroup Inc, where his brother-in-law worked.
