A former Ernst & Young (R&Y) partner together with an investment

Prosecutors said Gansman provided tips and Murdoch used them to trade
securities in personal accounts, earning more than $390,000 in profits.

The illegal trades allegedly took place between May 2006 and December 2007,
while Murdoch was working as a consultant and an investment banking managing
director at a broker-dealer and investment and financial services company.
