On the 9th day of testimony in the eBay v. Craigslist trial, eBay counsel dogged final witness Ananda Martin, a Perkins Coie associate who in a memo had characterized Craigslist's proposed strategy as "crafty," by leaving a Black's Dictionary definition on display during much of Martin's cross-examination. Martin testified that by using the word "crafty" she had intended to convey that Buckmaster's idea was "creative," and meant it as a compliment.
Craigslist counsel Ed Wes completed his testimony Thursday morning, and Perkins Coie associate Ananda Martin took the stand. Martin helped craft the shareholder rights plan that is at the heart of the eBay Craigslist dispute.
The CVN eBay-Craigslist trial coverage was interrupted briefly this morning due to a power outage at the Delaware Chancery Court (the courtroom went dark and the judge left the bench). When testimony resumed, questions to Craigslist counsel Ed Wes focused tightly on the development and implementation of the Craigslist corporate governance provisions at issue in the trial, as well as the options considered.
