    Rambus Trial

    Hayes Stagner is my partner and he is attending the Rambus trial.

    Stuart Steele

    Hayes Stagner says: To All Rambus Investors:

    I am a Rambus long who has been involved since 1999. I have attended a number of court proceedings in Virginia, Delaware, California and Washington, DC.

    At the very start of this JURY trial, John Danforth, in his usual polite manner, asked that all Rambus investors be fastidious in not talking about the case, in any way, at any time, in or around the court. A few investors (AND YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE) have chosen to ignore not only Mr. Danforth�s request, but several mentions by myself and others also in attendance.

    At the close of Thursday�s proceedings, Mr. Furniss, who represents Hynix, rose to tell Judge Whyte that �some members of the public� (Rambus investors are essentially the only ones there except lawyers, members of the press and analysts) had been overheard by Hynix lawyers talking about the case in the presence of Jurors. He asked that it be taken note of that this could be a very problematic situation that could cost both sides a great deal of money if the trial is tainted in any way. Our Mr. Stone chimed in fully supporting what Mr. Furniss said. Judge Whyte then said a few words himself about the importance of respecting the legal process.

    I cannot fully describe, without using multiple expletives which might offend our more gentile readers how angry and embarrassed I am that we Rambus investors were admonished for our conduct in and around the court in San Jose. It is ESPECIALLY outrageous that it had to come from any SOB representing Hynix.

    Let me share a few thoughts with some Rambus investors (AND YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE).

    1. This trial is about Judge Whyte, the jury and Rambus. IT�S NOT ABOUT YOU!
    2. A repeat of this irresponsible behavior might even result in our being excluded from the court room.
    3. We didn�t come to this trial to listen to you. We came to listen and understand these critical proceedings.
    4. There are many millions of dollars at stake for Rambus and therefore for us, the investors. Anything that might prejudice us or impede Mr. Stones work is outrageous.
    5. After all we have been through; we should feel privileged to be before a brilliant, fair and honest judge. It is an insult to this fine and decent man not to respect his requests and to honor his court by acting in any way that would interfere with him perusing a just end to this trial.

    I personally have a great deal of money invested in this company and some have a great deal more.

    I ask all of you to support me in demanding that certain Rambus investors (AND YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE) either refrain from discussing the case in or around the court or get the hell out and go home.

    Thank you.

      Do you suppose that we might hold out the hope that you might join them?

      No, it's just the Rambus method: make it up as you goalong, usually after the fact. It makes ten weak-minded somewhat less clued in to how much of a fsck-up you are. Very effective in this clubhouse.

      You are full of bull$hit.

    • I assume that when you say you are not talking near any jurors, that you mean you are not talking anywhere in or near the courthouse about the case. Is this true? Speaking about the case in earshot of the Hynix lawyers (regardless of the jurors' location) is asking for trouble!

    • WELL SAY

    • I believe it was a lie by Hynix lawyer. The jurors and the other people in court are separated at all or most of the time.

      Also, a LTL knows not to talk loud. Whisper in impossible for anyone to hear them. LTLs knows everything there is to know about rambus case so no need to talk about anything.

      I think Hynix wants to shut out LTLs so their reporters can report bias one sided news for them in court. They are hoping using the Media to help them win this lawsuit.

    • Stuart Steele,

      I attended the Trial, as well as the pre-trial motions. The only time jurors were near attendees was during the jury selection phase. Since that time the Jurors have been carefully sequestered.

      For a short time during jury selection some prospective jurors sat in the court seats or in the halls, rather than in the Jury room or the jury seats.

      I am aware of only one incident that occurred where two prospective jurors attempted to strike up a conversation with an LTL. That individual cut off the contact and immediately reported it to Danforth. Those two prospective jurors were disqualified, and not allowed on the jury, even as alternates.

      After Jury selection, to my knowledge, there has never been a time when Rambus supporters have been in the proximity of any Jurors, unless it was outside the Court Building.

      There is little or no opportunity for that to occur. In addition, John Danforth discussed the matter with us before the trial and jury selection, and and asked several of us to police the attendees, and prevent any such occurance.

      I know most of the LTLs in attendence, and I am confident no such event occurred. Apparently someone is telling you that he or she did witness such an event. I suggest that whoever is reporting the same to you is either mistaken, or possibly misleading you for reasons I can only imagine, perhaps out of jealousy or fear of competition, or merely to alarm you.

      If true is is certainly cause for concern, one we all share.

      Clearly Hynix Attorneys have good reason to wish the court closed, and in particular to cut off the flow of information to the Rambus stock holders and to the boards. It provides them cover for their plans.

      Clearly Rambus longs have an interest, as you do, in the excellent reporting that has been coming from the Court. LTLs need to protect their investments, which while not so large as yours, in many cases represent a much larger portion of their assets.

      You can be assured that, despite what you may have heard, the LTLs attending are behaving in a very circumspect fashion, and that far from speaking about the case in front of the Jurors, a virtual impossibility, IMO, are policing each other to make sure it doesn't occur.

      In addition, after the Hynix assertions to Judge Whyte, with its obvious goal of disrupting the trial or, at minimum, the reporting from the trial, the LTLs will be policing not only eacy other, but any unknown faces who happen to attend.
