If Apothepo Is Innocent, Why Is He Hiding?

I am on Larry Ellison's side. Thanks for the drama, Larry. It's been fun watching.

Oracle Rests SAP Case, Slams HP CEO
Ellison to Self: Damn, Damn. I Knew I Should Have Said $4.5 Billion
Oracle Co-President on SAP’s Damages Offer: “It’s Crazy”
Oracle-SAP Trial: Ellison Swaps Katana for Poison Darts If Oracle CEO Larry Ellison’s testimony today in the SAP trial lacked his usual flair for enthusiastic bloodletting, it was only because he put aside his standard samurai tactics in favor of a more subtle ninja approach
Objection: Mr. Ellison Is Referring to the Defendant as “Choleric of Temper” Again Unless its legal team somehow manages to keep him from turning the witness stand into a bully pulpit, a difficult task given Ellison’s mercurial manner and “Art of War”-style tactical thinking
Oracle to HP CEO: Chicken! So just where is Léo Apotheker? Clearly Oracle doesn’t know. And HP’s not saying. Perhaps the company has him hidden away in a secret bunker under the original HP garage…
Ellison to HP CEO: “Warrior, Come Out to Plaaeeay! Oracle CEO Larry Ellison essentially dared Apotheker to appear on the witness stand, suggesting that HP’s newly appointed Chairman, Raymond Lane–a former Oracle president–might try to keep him from testifying..... “A few weeks ago I accused HP’s new CEO, Leo Apotheker, of overseeing an industrial espionage scheme centering on the repeated theft of massive amounts of Oracle’s software. A major portion of this theft occurred while Mr. Apotheker was CEO of SAP,” Ellison said in a statement...... “HP’s Chairman, Ray Lane, immediately came to Mr. Apotheker’s defense by writing a letter stating, ‘Oracle has been litigating this case for years and has never offered any evidence that Mr. Apotheker was involved.’ Well, that’s what we are planning to do during the trial that starts next Monday. Unless, Mr. Lane and the rest of the HP Board of Directors decide to keep their new CEO far, far away from HP Headquarters until that trial is over. If HP keeps Leo Apotheker far from HP headquarters we cannot subpoena him to testify at that trial.”
