Jorgenson told The Seattle Times that he tipped a friend to nonpublic, proprietary Microsoft financial information three times in the past 18 months, allowing them to make money in the stock market. He estimated his friend made more than $200,000, although Jorgenson said it is hard to say exactly how much money was made since he didn’t have direct access to his friend’s trading accounts. In exchange, Jorgenson said his friend gave him about $40,000.
Jorgenson worked at Microsoft for three years as a $130,000-a-year senior manager in the company’s Treasury Group before he was fired when the trading scheme was uncovered last month."
