Third Week Of Deliberations Begin In Rajaratnam Case

May 9 2011 | 1:04pm ET

The jurors in the Raj Rajaratnam case are back in the jury room today after ending their second week of deliberations—and third day since restarting them—without a verdict.

The Galleon Group chief faces 14 insider-trading-related charges, and faces decades in prison if convicted. Rajaratnam was back in court on Friday for the first time since the previous Thursday, after having emerging foot surgery last Sunday.

The panel did not ask for any evidence or other materials on Friday; they had spent the previous two days rehearing a total of 18 wiretaps at the center of the case.

U.S. District Judge Richard Holwell on Wednesday ordered the jury to start their deliberations over after he dismissed a juror for medical reasons.
