Galleon Partner’s Eyes ‘Popping’ After Trade, Trader Says

After Raj Rajaratnam got what prosecutors say was an illegal tip about Goldman Sachs Group Inc., a partner at Galleon Group LLC who was excluded from the trade turned red-faced and angry, a witness at the Rajat Gupta trial testified.

Prosecutors claim that Gupta, who was a Goldman Sachs director, tipped Rajaratnam on Sept. 23, 2008, that Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc. would make a $5 billion investment in the firm. Gupta is on trial for securities fraud and conspiracy in Manhattan federal court.
