U.S. SEC accuses former Apple lawyer of insider trading

Feb 13 (Reuters) - The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on Wednesday filed a lawsuit accusing a former lawyer at Apple Inc of insider trading ahead of the iPhone maker's quarterly earnings announcements.

In a complaint filed in New Jersey federal court, the SEC said Gene Levoff exploited his position as a senior lawyer and member of Apple's disclosure committee to conduct illegal trading that resulted in about $382,000 of illegal profits and avoided losses.
