Walter “Chet” Little, a former Foley & Lardner partner arrested on insider trading charges after he left that firm and joined Bradley Arant Boult Cummings, admitted to conspiracy to commit securities fraud in Manhattan federal court on Thursday.

In Little’s plea deal, the government agreed to move for dismissal of any other open counts against him when he returns to court for sentencing.
