GUPTA TRIAL Judge Jed Rakoff

Here are some of the trials that I covered where Judge Rakoff presided.
Terra Firma v Citibank
US v Winnie Jiau
US v James Fleishman
US v Marc Dreier
Picard v Katz ( "Mets/Madoff ")
US v Rajat Gupta
He is one of the most prominent and active judges I have seen, scheduling hearings and conferences
late( even on Friday afternoons), and going late into the evening. He knows how to handle the press and moves cases along quickly. Indeed he informed lawyers  that they need to sharpen their presentation and avoid jury boredom  at the Gupta trial.
