Today was his first appearance. Judge Buchwald was assigned the case, David Massey is the Assistant US Attorney and Rengan's lawyer is Vinoo Varghese. The judge seeing these names for the first time, instead of attempting to pronounce them, referred to Rengan Rajaratnam as Mr RR and his lawyer as Mr VV. Admittedly took me a while to learn how to say Raj Rajaratnam's name and spell it too.
