This just in from the court - there will be a hearing on Google's motion to exclude Dr. Cockburn's third damages report next Wednesday. (756 [PDF; Text]) Really hope the good judge doesn't strain his back bending over backwards trying to accommodate Oracle's failure to listen to his instructions on preparing this third damages report.
We would love to get a first-hand description of the hearing. If we have any readers who would be available to attend this hearing, please let us know. You should expect the hearing to last all morning. The hearing will be at 7:30 a.m., in courtroom 8, 19th floor, 450 Golden Gate Avenue
