NEW YORK (TheStreet) - David Einhorn's hedge fund Greenlight Capital has identified the anonymous Seeking Alpha blogger responsible for tipping the public about the hedge fund's investment in Micron technologies (MU - Get Report).
"Greenlight has identified the anonymous blogger and has resolved the matter privately to our satisfaction," Jonathan Gasthalter, an outside spokesperson for Greenlight Capital, said in an emailed statement to TheStreet.
Earlier in 2014, Greenlight sued Seeking Alpha, asking that the Israeli-based financial website disclose the identity of the author who leaked the hedge fund's accumulating position in Micron Technologies.
Valuable Insights, an anonymous poster to Seeking Alpha, wrote in a Nov. 14 post that Greenlight was in the process of amassing a large position in Micron Technologies.
Greenlight said in a February lawsuit that on the very same day, the hedge fund had requested that the Securities and Exchange Commission give it confidential treatment in building its Micron's stake. Greenlight wanted to keep its investment confidential for another week, the lawsuit contended.
