Galleon Fund Defense
Galleon Fund Disputes Government's Accusations
Billionaire hedge fund operator Raj Rajaratnam's (RAHJ rah-juh-RUHT'-nuhm) lawyers made the arguments in papers filed Tuesday in federal court in Manhattan.
The Sri Lanka-born Rajaratnam is among 20 people charged in a $52 million insider trading case. The portfolio manager for the Galleon Group hedge fund remains free on $100 million bail.
Rajaratnam's lawyers say he based trades on information that was already public. They also say the government misled a judge to surreptitiously tape phone conversations by Rajaratnam and others. Source
