John Kinnucan, the research firm founder at the center of the Justice Dept.'s widening insider-trading investigation, has received another subpoena.
The information request from the Securities and Exchange Commission comes less than two weeks after the Broadband Research chief got one from the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The new subpoena seeks information about Sedna Capital Management, the now-defunct hedge fund founded by Regnan Rajaratnam, the brother of Galleon Group founder and insider-trading defendant Raj Rajaratnam.
Kinnucan, who became something of a celebrity for refusing to cooperate with the FBI in the insider-trading probe, told Business Insider that he's "never even heard" of Sedna.
"I've never even done business with Galleon," he said.
Kinnucan, who has two days to respond to the request, said the SEC was seeking "even more details" and "more personal information" than the FBI: "anything related to his business for the last three years."
