Judge Milton Pollack's order stemmed from an SEC civil suit accusing Sloate of buying stock of BankAmerica in 1986 and Shearson in 1981 on the basis of nonpublic information.

The SEC said Sloate was tipped by a doctor, who got his information from one of his patients, the wife of Wall Street executive Sanford Weill.
