NEW YORK (AP) — Lawyers for a one-time billionaire hedge fund founder say there's no reason to unseal arguments about his medical issues before his sentencing next week in New York for an insider trading conviction.The lawyers for Raj Rajaratnam (rahj rah-juh-RUHT'-nuhm) on Monday asked a judge to reject a request by prosecutors to make the information public.Prosecutors said last week it was only fair to unseal the information. Rajaratnam is asking for leniency in part on medical grounds from a potential sentence of up to 30 years in prison.The lawyers wrote in a submission to federal Judge Richard Holwell that making the records public could subject Rajaratnam to a "salacious and morbid media feeding frenzy."The 54-year-old Sri Lanka-born founder of Galleon Group funds was convicted in May.
