Wait a minute
"they "stood down" Eagan, Kanter and another witness at the same time as three of HPE's witnesses were stood down"
So, first of all, HPE is doing the exact same thing as Autonomy, and second, you can actually refuse to testify if you are called to the bar ?
Must have something to do with not yet being called to the bar, I guess.
Anyways, the title is wrong. It should be something more like "Autonomy trial sees both sides trim witness testimony from the judge".
It's amazing what companies can get away with. You or me, we wouldn't dare pull that kind of stunt.
