After two years of legal battles, Westporter Rajat Gupta, the former Goldman Sachs Group Inc. director found guilty of insider trading, must report to prison next week after a U.S. Supreme Court justice rejected a last-ditch request.
Rajat Gupta: has been free on $10 million bail. File photo
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, making no comment, today refused to let Gupta, 65, remain free on $10 million bail at his Greens Farms home while he appeals his conviction.
Gupta is scheduled to surrender to prison authorities on Tuesday, June 17 to begin a two-year sentence.
Gupta, who is also a former McKinsey & Co. managing partner, is the highest-profile executive convicted in a crackdown on insider trading at hedge funds. He was found guilty in 2012 of passing illegal tips to billionaire Galleon Group LLC co-founder Raj Rajaratnam.
