We are waiting to go back into the courtroom to learn the new verdict In the Pao-Kleiner trial, the last day of which had been interesting.
We have a new verdict in Pao-Kleiner.
If 1 juror switches vote for Kleiner, firm wins all 4 claims, and it's over. If 5 switch for Pao, she wins one claim, and damages.
So jury deciding if Kleiner Perkins retaliated against Ellen Pao by firing her for talking, emailing partners about sexism and filing suit.
Press kicked back out of Pao-Kleiner courtroom. Judge has figured out jury question. We are making progress, optimists declare.
Pao-Kleiner court has reconvened. Judge is not in robes. Jury is not here. We are sorting out jury question about retaliation in firing.
Ellen Pao returns to courtroom. Has jury worked out miscount?
Jury has a question in Pao-Kleiner. They seek info while rehuddling over part of case after apparent miscount scuttled their verdict.
"They said they had a verdict, but they don't," court liaison tells curious court watcher. Pao jury is still re-huddling after an hour.
A Fewer Good Men. The Goof Wife. Pao-Kleiner's big moment breaks down on final count of final claim. Now we wait.
Jury could still change everything, court liaison tells us. It might've been foul tip on last pitch of game, but Ellen Pao's still in game.
The 4th claim - whether Kleiner retaliated against Ellen Pao in firing her - is where the jury miscount (?) happened. Only 8-4, Need 9-3.
Jury came back in Pao-Kleiner, Pao was losing everything - until a mishap! Apparent miscount by jury on last count. They rehuddle. We wait.
Our understanding is that Ellen Pao could still get compensatory and punitive damages. Jury appears to have miscounted on 4th claim. Crazy.
Inside courtroom, Ellen Pao strokes her chin and chuckles. Kleiner lawyers stand with hands on hips. We have gone from slam dunk do-over.
Three dozen reporters try to make sense of verdict-wit, no verdict! in the hallway outside courtroom. The case that wouldn't die didn't die.
Wait! 8-4 vote on fourth claim. Must be 9-3. "I am unable to record the verdict," judge says. He asks them to resume deliberations.
Judge is asking each juror. Ellen Pao's side lost badly The Nos far outweigh the yeses. Kleiner Perkins has decidedly won sexism case.
Ellen Pao looks down, forces a smile, she has lost on every claim. Kleiner has won the 3-year legal battle.
So far jury has said no to all of Ellen Pao's claims against Kleiner Perkins in sexism trial.
Gender discrimination in termination? No. Retaliation for not promoted general partner? No.
Verdict in Pao-Kleiner trial: Gender discrimination in no promotion to senior partner? No. General partner? No.
The Pao-Kleiner jury enters the full, nervous courtroom looking serious. What verdict will they give? 3-year legal battle led up to this.
Ellen Pao walks through dozens of reporters into the courtroom, smiling as usual, with her legal team.
Pao-Kleiner judge huddling with attorneys inside courtroom. Jury not in yet. Dozens of "Paoparazzi" press fill hall outside. Verdict in 15.
Kleiner legal team all smiles as they walk past several dozen who have flocked to the Pao trial courtroom to hear verdict in half-hour.
Verdict in Pao-Kleiner sexism trial is half-hour away. (2 pm, PST) 4-week trial and 3-year legal fight comes down to this.
The Pao jury has reached a verdict. It will be delivered at 2 p.m.
Huddled jurors ask about telltale testimony: Kleiner partner saying Ellen Pao lacked "genetic makeup" to be investor.…
