NEW YORK (Reuters) – A U.S. judge on Thursday rejected AT&T Inc (NYSE:)’s bid to dismiss a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission lawsuit accusing it of giving some Wall Street analysts nonpublic information about the phone company’s forthcoming financial results in early 2016.
In a 129-page decision, U.S. District Judge Paul Engelmayer in Manhattan said he found “formidable” evidence that AT&T investor relations executives selectively fed material nonpublic information to analysts, and did so with an intent to defraud.
