GOOG didn't buy someone. This isn't Hollywood. GOOG would be put out of business with jury tampering. I do think having the judge reduce the claim two days before closing arguments needs to be examine. This should have been made clear from the beginning. Do I think GOOG got to the Judge? No. I think the judge erred with the delay of this ruling. It might, a very, very small might, give grounds for a mistrial.
