Michael Kimelman was sentenced to serve 2 1/2 years in prison yesterday for his role in the Zvi Goffer insider trading case. Mr. Kimelman, a non-practicing attorney, “Understood better than most the illegality of this kind of conduct,” Southern District Judge Richard Sullivan said in rejecting a plea for leniency by attorney Michael Sommer of Wilson, Sonsini, Goodrich & Rosati. Mr. Kimelman, 40, was convicted on June 13 along with Zvi Goffer and Emanuel Goffer of trading on inside information stolen from Ropes & Gray by then-firm associates Arthur Cutillo and Brien Santarlas. The two lawyers, along with a third attorney, middleman Jason Goldfarb, were paid $32,500 each by Zvi Goffer for providing information on companies such as Axcan Pharma and 3Com Corp. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Andrew Fish and Richard Tarlowe.
