Investor firm Disruptive Technology Solutions LLC accuses Morgan Stanley of front running block trades — SEC and DOJ investigating

Disruptive Technology Solutions LLC has accused Morgan Stanley of leaking information about pending large block sales of shares of Palantir technologies, that they were ordered to carry out quietly, according to the Wall Street Journal. The Journal says that the Securities and Exchange Commission and Justice Department are investigating whether banks tipped off clients about the pending sales. The Journal says that the SEC has asked for trading records and electronic communications from a number of banks and hedge funds and that Morgan Stanley has responded. Disruptive Technology has filed for arbitration against the bank seeming compensatory and punitive damages, according to the Journal.
