So HP are chasing him in UK and US courts?

Doesn't Double Jeopardy apply here?.

I'm not saying that I agree with what he may or may not have done but chasing the same guy in 2 different countries for the same thing smacks of corporate bullying.

If I was the UK judge, I would be asking HP to prove he cost them £5bn, on that test alone, I suspect it would be not guilty.
