NEW YORK Nov 30 Billionaire Steven A. Cohen's
former hedge fund SAC Capital Advisors LP has agreed to pay $135
million to resolve a lawsuit by shareholders of Elan Corp, who
claimed they lost money because it engaged in insider trading in
the drugmaker's stock.
The proposed settlement was disclosed in court papers filed
on Wednesday in Manhattan federal court and would resolve a
class action launched following the arrest of a former SAC
Capital portfolio manager, Mathew Martoma, for insider trading.
