The complaint, April 24 in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, alleged that Marc Gabelli authorized Headstart to place market timing trades in the fund, and neither he nor Alpert informed the board of directors that Headstart was permitted to market time while other market timers were blocked from doing so.

with the SEC, agreeing to pay $16 million. The New York firm neither admitted nor denied the SEC's findings.
