In today's Wall Street Journal...

<snip>
When SAC Capital Advisors LP was weighing an investment in Vertex
Pharmaceuticals Inc., VRTX -0.18% the hedge-fund firm contacted a source it
knew would provide nonpublic information without blinking: the federal
government.

An investment manager for an SAC affiliate asked the Food and Drug
Administration last December for any "adverse event reports" for Vertex's
recently approved cystic-fibrosis drug. Under the Freedom of Information
Act, the agency had to hand over the material, which revealed no major
problems. The bill: $72.50, cheaper than the price of two Vertex shares.
