If you've read the Day 2 story already and the excellent coverage provided by mirror_slap, you know that Mr. Van Nest, Google's lead counsel, gave Larry Ellison a bit of a hard time on the stand. It appears that Mr. Ellison wanted to give different (more evasive) answers on the stand than he gave during deposition. That should not have played well with the jury, and it certainly opens to question whether anything Ellison said on the stand is credible.
But before Ellison was called as Oracle's first witness, Mr. Van Nest presented Google's opening statement. Here are the Google slides [PDF] used by Mr. Van Nest. Worth a look.
Not much in the way of filings for the day. The Court ruled on requests from both parties to seal some documents. (935 [PDF]) It's certainly been fun watching Judge Alsup insist that this trial remain open to the public unlike a lot of infringement actions.
Here is the updated witness list from Oracle (937 [PDF]):
1. Bloch, Joshua
2. Cizek, Leo
3. Gupta, Vineet (by video)
4. Lee, Bob
5. Lindholm, Tim
6. Miner, Rich (by video)
7. Morrill, Dan
8. Reinhold, Mark
9. Screven, Edward
10. Swetland, Brian
The direct examinations of Mssrs. Ellison, Page, and Kurian are complete, and Oracle has now added Mssrs. Cizek, Gupta, and Morrill.
On to Day Three.
