Let's try that again: Despite flip-flopping jury, Pao loses Kleiner suit on all counts (definitely this time)
Earlier this afternoon, in a final twist, the judge in the Pao vs Kleiner trial ordered the jury to go back and try again to reach a majority verdict after confusion over juror votes. A jury aiming to understand what really drives one of the world's most powerful venture first apparently foiled by basic math.
But no matter! A few moments ago, that same jury returned, this time promising that they definitely -- absolutely -- no doubt about it -- have reached a verdict on whether Pao's termination by Kleiner was the result of retaliation or other discrimination.
Their verdict: No.
That verdict still means that Kleiner has been exonerated on all counts. Despite that, Pao was seen smiling at the jury after the decision.
Once the verdict was read, Judge Kahn released the jury but not before warning them about the sharks in the press.
