"One of the things Ted made very clear was that they had one theory at the time of the ballot, they had another theory after the ballot passed, they had another theory when they started the trial, they've got another theory now. And what that really says is that they don't have a theory. They don't have a rational basis. All they have is a willingness to seize on whatever arguments they can come up with for this objective.

The objective is driving the arguments. The arguments aren't driving the objective."

--David Boies in an interview with Karen Ocamb
