RAJ LAWYER MIDDLE FINGER

That turned ugly fast.

On Wednesday, Galleon Group hedge fund manager Raj Rajaratnam was found guilty on all 14 counts of securities fraud and conspiracy, in what has been one of the most closely-watched insider trading trials of recent years.

Later in the day, Rajaratnam's lawyer, John Dowd, needed only one finger to express his frustration. "Get the f--- out of here," Dowd said after being approached for comment by a network cameraman. Dowd then lifted his middle finger to the camera and said, "that's what I've got for CNBC."

Dowd's flipping of the bird is only the most recent outrageous moment to have transpired over the course of the Rajaratnam trial. In March, jurors listened to a recording Rajaratnam's brother, Rengan, calling to say, "Oh dude, we're f-----," the WSJ then reported. Rengan's concern stemmed from reports of alleged insider trading by the Wall Street Journal.
