US v. Martoma, 14-3599

Affirmed. Defendant was convicted of securities fraud and insider trading. After conviction defendant argues that the jury was not properly instructed and that there was insufficient evidence to sustain his conviction. The 2nd Circuit held that the jury instructions were inconsistent with US v. Newman (2014) 773 F.3d, but that the instructional error did not affect defendants substantial rights. In addition, the 2nd Circuit held that sufficient evidence was presented.
