Arlo Devlin-Brown is quoted by The Wall Street Journal in an article regarding the Supreme Court’s ruling in the Salman case which restores some of the power the government lost in a 2014 federal case relating to insider trading prosecutions.  According to Devlin-Brown, “The problem with the word friend is that it is very elastic.
