SAC Capital seeks protective order on operations after charges

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Steven A. Cohen's $15 billion hedge fund SAC Capital Advisors is working on an agreement with U.S. prosecutors for an order to "reasonably protect all parties legitimate interests" as the firm faces criminal insider trading charges.

SAC spokesman Jonathan Gasthalter said in statement on Thursday that a prosecution by the U.S. Attorney in Manhattan "is not intended to affect the ongoing operations of SAC's business, prevent investor redemptions, or impact the interests of any of SAC's counterparties."

He said it was not an attempt to freeze any of the hedge fund's assets.

"We anticipate that we and the U.S. Attorney's Office will agree to a protective order intended to reasonably protect all parties' legitimate interests, but will expressly permit SAC to continue its operations in the ordinary course."
