Dan Wenner and Kenton Atta-Krah wrote an article, "A Cautionary Tale About 'Other Acts' And Insider Trading," for Law360. The article analyzes the significance ofUnited States v. DeCinces, in which the Ninth Circuit addressed two interlocutory appeals from DeCinces' securities fraud and insider trading prosecution and reversed the district court's order granting a motion in limine to exclude evidence against DeCinces. The government's application of Rule 404(b) in this case could have serious implications for other defendants in insider trading prosecutions.
