Horvath took home a relative pittance of $416,084 of compensation in 2007, compared with Steinberg’s $5.1 million. He rang in the New Year vowing to do better. He cultivated a relationship with Jesse Tortora, an analyst at a hedge fund called Diamondback Capital, whom he’d met through a former roommate in San Francisco. Tortora was well connected and started funneling him inside information about Dell, which, Horvath later testified, he passed up to Steinberg. [BusinessWeek / Sheelah Kolhatkar]

    love the enigma-like code Horvath came up with. JT = TJ, GAL = LAG? I bet he threw a lot of people off the scent.
