Kumar was just doing "consulting" work for Raj, okay?
Dowd also asked Kumar about his testimony that he was paid $1 million for his tip about AMD’s acquisition of ATI, suggesting instead that Kumar was being paid for legitimate consulting work.
Who can even tell the difference between working as a 'consultant' and a 'source of information it'd be illegal for someone to trade on'? It's easy to see how people could be confused, there's a lot of gray area here. But it was all just a misunderstanding and this case should be thrown out. No further questions.
