On August 12, Robert Stewart, the father of former investment banker Sean Stewart, pled guilty to participating in a conspiracy to trade on inside information about several mergers and acquisitions that his son had passed on to him.  According to Robert Stewart’s plea agreement, he and a coconspirator (who later became a cooperating witness) used golf-related codes to discuss their trading.  Charges against Sean Stewart remain pending before District Judge Laura Taylor Swain.  United States v.
