4. Irv, a custodian at Gargantuan Corp., was dusting a corporate executive's desk one evening when he discovered and read an interesting report containing information that was not available to the investing public. The information was such that if it were available to the investing public, the price and value of gargantuan stock would soar. Irv informed his friend, Simone, of what he had read in the document. Simone then purchased 100 shares of gargantuan stock from Cletus, without telling Cletus the information given to her by Irv. When this information ultimately was made available to the investing public, the value of gargantuan stock indeed soared. Simone resold, at a substantial profit, the 100 shares she had purchased from Cletus. Cletus thereafter sued Simone in an attempt to recover the profit Simone had made. Simone denied any liability to Cletus, claiming that because she was not an director, officer. or employee of Gargantuan, she had done nothing wrong. Is Simone liable to Cletus? Why or why not?
