The opening statements in the Iowa Mircosoft litigation were delayed today. Pre-trial instructions took hours. Check out Brett Trout’s blog. He sat in on the trial today.
Here is something to keep in mind. If opening statements are tomorrow, I’ll bet that Roxanne Conlin takes all the day and more to give her opening. The jurors will go home having heard only the Plaintiffs’ side of the story the first weekend. The only way this doesn’t happen is if Judge Rosenberg dismisses the jurors for the day after the remaining instructions. First impressions are lasting impressions.
