Kahn Job: Lauderdale Woman Is Key Witness in Major Insider Trading Case
A 51-year-old Fort Lauderdale woman named Roomy Khan is prepared to testify against her former boss at Galleon, a $3 billion hedge fund ensnared in one of the nation's largest-ever insider trading cases.
But Khan will be taking quite a bit of baggage to the witness stand.
New York Times reporters found that Khan had been busted herself, based on illegal activities while working for Intel in the late 1990s, when she provided tips to a director of Galleon's hedge fund, which may have helped her land a job at Galleon only to be later fired for ethical lapses. She was convicted of fraud in 2001.
