The San Francisco Chronicle is reporting that California gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman will be a “star witness” in the upcoming eBay v. Craigslist trial to be webcast by CVN from Delaware. Whitman was president and CEO of eBay at the time of the events in question.
Whitman endorsed Mitt Romney for President, and then John McCain. On September 22, 2009, she announced her candidacy for California’s governorship. Whitman’s appearance on the stand is sure to raise the profile of this already prominent megatrial between cross-town rivals eBay of Silicon Valley, and Craigslist of San Francisco.
