  • Vringo V Google Trial: Minutes Of Days 2 And 3 1 comment
    Oct 18, 2012 8:42 PM | about stocks: FH, GOOG

    Since I wasn't able to attend the I/P Engine v. Aol et al, aka the Vringo (VRNG) v Google (NASDAQ:GOOG), trial yesterday or today due to work commitments, I pulled the court clerk's Minutes of Proceedings, which are here:

    I note that the Day 3 minutes are only one page long, even though the bottom of that page says "continued on page 2". I've checked twice and the document on the court system as of the posting of this article by me was only one page long. It appears that may be complete, as the final entry at the bottom of the page is that Court was adjourned until Friday at 10am. Just to double check, here is the description entered in the PACER system, which includes everything in the Minutes:

    JURY TRIAL (DAY #3) held on 10/18/2012 before District Judge Raymond A. Jackson. Attorneys Kenneth Brothers, Jeffrey Sherwood, Frank Cimino, Jr., Charles Monterio, and W. Ryan Snow appeared on behalf of the Plaintiff. Andrew Perlman, Corporate Representative present. Attorneys David Nelson, David Perlson, Emily OBrien and Stephen Noona, appeared on behalf of defendants AOL, Inc., Google Inc., IAC Search & Media, Inc., Gannett Company, Inc., and Target Corporation. Petit jurors (9) appeared pursuant to adjournment last evening 10/17/12. Comments of Court and counsel re: sealing of courtroom for testimony on proprietary information. Public notice to be posted. Plaintiff continued presentation of evidence witnesses sworn and testified. Video deposition of Jon Diorio, Gary Holt and Bartholomew Furrow shown to the jury. Plaintiffs Exhibits introduced and admitted into evidence. Objections heard and rulings made on the record. Court adjourned until Friday, 10/19/12 at 10:00 a.m. Jury Trial continued to 10/19/2012 at 10:00 AM in Norfolk Courtroom 4 before District Judge Raymond A. Jackson. (Court Reporter Sharon Borden, OCR (a.m.) and Jody Stewart, OCR (p.m.).)(ptom) (Entered: 10/18/2012)

    The case appears to be going generally as I described in my Preview of the trial, including that fact that the courtroom may be closed to the public for portions of the presentation of evidence in order to protect the parties (most likely Google's) proprietary information. I was able to attend Day 1 of the trial on Tuesday and put my report about what happened then here.

    Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.

    Stocks: FH, GOOG
