Raj Rajaratnam Insider-Trading Trial Begins in U.S. Court

Galleon Group LLC co-founder Raj Rajaratnam’s criminal trial began today with about 110 potential jurors assembling in Manhattan federal court to answer questions about their views of Wall Street, hedge-fund managers and the recession.

U.S. District Judge Richard Holwell today read items from a 15-page questionnaire to 40 of the potential jurors, who are drawn from eight counties in New York state. In most cases, people who responded “yes” to a question were called to the bench to answer further queries in private.
