NYLJ: Rajaratnam Team Urges Circuit to Suppress Wiretap Evidence
Board member Vinoo Varghese, whose amici brief in the Rajaratnam case was quoted in the New York Times on October 23, was quoted in an article about the same case in the New York Law Journal on October 26.
Also submitting an amicus in Rajaratnam on behalf of the National Legal Aid & Defender Association and the Bronx Defenders was Vinoo Varghese of Varghese & Associates.
Varghese wrote the government’s “lack of candor, which the lower court found to be reckless at best, cannot be tolerated” and, if allowed to stand would “gut the Fourth Amendment and Title III protections in wiretap cases going forward.”
Congrats again to Vinoo on the recognition of his excellent work! To read the full brief go to http://bit.ly/rajaratnam_vpv.
