Gupta Trial Deliberations Begin in Insider Trading Case

The fate of Rajat Gupta, the former Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Procter & Gamble Co. director charged with insider trading, was placed in the hands of a jury as deliberations began in Manhattan federal court.

“Your duty is to decide the fact issues in the case and arrive, if you can, at a verdict,” U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff told the panel, made up of 8 women and 4 men. “You are to perform your duty of finding the facts without bias or prejudice as to any party. You are to perform your final duty in an attitude of complete fairness and impartiality.”
