Rajaratnam Deliberations Start Over After Juror Leaves

Deliberations in the insider-trading trial of Raj Rajaratnam started over after a juror was dismissed for medical reasons following six days of weighing charges against the Galleon Group LLC co-founder.

Both sides agreed to replace the juror with an alternate, a 39-year-old employee of the Westchester, New York, parks department, bringing the panel to eight women and four men. The original jury began considering securities fraud and conspiracy counts against Rajaratnam in Manhattan federal court April 25.
