"Gupta’s Likely Wiretap Appeal Faces Slim Chance Of Success"
06.15.12Barry Pollack comments on the likely appeal of Rajat Gupta based upon wiretap evidence. Gupta was recently convicted on securities fraud charges in part by wiretap evidence presented to the jury, while other recordings which showed another executive had provided inside information and may have been the source of the inside information Gupta was charged with providing was not allowed. "The judge did not allow that evidence, and I think you’ll see Mr. Gupta raise that on appeal, that his right to put on a defense was circumscribed by his inability to demonstrate that, if there was inside information that was leaked, that he wasn’t the leaker," said Pollack.
