"I was there with my red dress on, carrying two pads and five (not just two) pens. Nobody seemed to notice the red dress lapel pen from the American Heart Association, though.

"Before I do my full report, a couple of highlights:

"Groklaw was discussed (with jury out of the room) twice, with respect to the Maureen O'Gara deposition. The first was to strike a mention of Groklaw; the second, a mention of pj. In the end, Judge Ted Stewart observed that if we can't trust the jury to follow his admonitions, we'd just as well quit. It's not clear just how much will be allowed in the end. I see you have an article up that may be about this, but I won't get to read it until I finish reporting.

"Our friendly neighborhood Salt Lake Tribune reporter was there for the whole thing. He seemed friendly with the SCOGlings, but didn't seem to talk to Novell's side. I went up to him and mentioned that 'it must be nice to cover a story in person, rather than sitting around doing telephone work'. Then we got serious. I mentioned that Groklaw had been following his stories, and was dissatisfied with the one-sidedness. He said he had gotten some emails about it. He complained of having trouble finding things on Groklaw, agreeing that there's a lot there. He couldn't find the search function; I couldn't help, because I use the red-dress essayage style, rather than the default that he would use. His bottom line was that it's still SCOG's turn, so that's all he has to report on."
