The former KPMG partner who gave confidential information about several companies the accounting firm audited will at last plead guilty next week.
Scott London will enter his new plea on Monday before U.S. District Judge George Wu in Los Angeles. A not-guilty plea was entered for London, who quickly admitted his crimes when confronted by authorities earlier this year, so that the case could be transferred to Wu, who is presiding over the case against the beneficiaries of London's tips, his friend Bryan Shaw.
