    First intel and nvidia need to get their LTE act together and then we’ll talk.

    “Hogan, in a phone interview yesterday, denied that there
    was any misconduct, saying the court instructions for potential
    jurors required disclosure of any litigation they were involved
    in within the last 10 years — and that the 1993 bankruptcy and
    related litigation involving Seagate fell well outside that time
    range.” The 93 trial would put it at 9 years which is before the 10 year time frame so yeah that is basic math that he fails at here.

    • TongueDar

      I see your other post, but regardless, the guy is a liar. The court never gave him a time constraint, he injected the 10 years into his own wacked out train of thought. This guy lies compulsively I’ve noticed.

      From the other site, this was the question he was actually asked:

      “THE COURT: Okay. Welcome back. Please take a seat. We had a few more
      departures in your absence. Let’s continue with the questions. The
      next question is, have you or a family member or someone very close to
      you ever been involved in a lawsuit, either as a plaintiff, a
      defendant, or as a witness?”

      • PhilNelwyn

        That’s what I think too, but I have a doubt…
        In the phone interview, he talks about “court instructions for potential jurors,” not about a question.
        Are potential jurors given written instructions before being questioned?

        • TC789

          One of the other jurors mentioned a case they were involved in from 1998 beyond ten years and in the same session of questioning. Based on everything else he’s said in his video interview, I think its safe to say he didn’t read the court instructions, and either lied or just failed to answer the questions truthfully/correctly.

          To quote someone from Groklaw comments, “Lying by omission is still lying” as a former employer I’m sure he knew Seagate was part owned by Samsung, there’s no way he’d have been allowed on the jury if he’d offered this information.

          • PhilNelwyn

            That would be so stupid to lie about something that’s going to be discussed by the same court, I can’t believe someone could be that dumb. lol

        • Unorthodox

          I’m a Canadian, and recently got a letter from Attorney General office for potential jurors. I still have the instructions paper in front of me. Although the question is different, and only pertains to indictable criminal offenses, there is NO TIME LIMIT specified.
          Here’s quote:

            Thanks.

  • Montisaquadeis

    never mind for some reason I was thinking it was 2002

    • pie_eater

      Yeah, your ‘basic math’ statement made me smile.

  • Crickerman

    The original court transcript did not say anything about “10 years.” He’s making it up to save his own skin.

    • b_to_the_randon

      The good news, as I’m sure you’ve seen, is that strangely courts keep records of everything that happens in them. In the voir dire it clearly contradicts his lie.
