British authorities arrested a ninth person in an insider-trading case whose first collars came almost two years ago.
A Legal & General Investment Management employee was arrested this week and questioned at a London police station before being released on bail. The arrest follows seven in early 2010—including employees of hedge funds Moore Capital Management and Aria Capital—and another in April.
