February 14, 2006, Ken Rice, CEO of Enron Broadband Services, testified against Jeff Skilling.
It is curious that the premature ejaculator Sean Berkowitz starts out questioning Rice about EBS. It is true that CEO of Broadband was the last position Rice held at Enron, but this was the SKILLING trial. The federal prosecutors were so gun shy after their failure with the EBS trial that the Skilling attorneys actually got the prosecutors to stipulate that nothing about the actual EBS technology in 1999 and 2000 would be talked about by them at Skilling’s trial. So Berkowitz launches, first thing, into the technology – against the agreement. This was something he did routinely. The reason of why Jeff Skilling resigned on August 14 was also known to the prosecution. They stipulated that they wouldn’t ask about his motivation at trial, and yet as soon as the agreement was reached, the ETF breeched it.
