Albert, partners at Morvillo, Abramowitz, Grand, Iason, Anello & Bohrer, write: Although the "pioneering nature" of the use of wiretaps in the insider trading case of 'United States v.

Of particular note is the "necessity" requirement, which is intended to limit the use of wiretaps by requiring the government to demonstrate that no reasonable alternative investigative techniques will suffice.
