Kleiner Casts Itself as Victim as Ellen Pao Case is Turned Over to the Jury

After four and a half weeks of courtroom drama, Ellen Pao's high-profile gender bias suit against venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers was turned over to the jury for deliberations on Wednesday morning.
As soon as closing arguments were finished, the six men and six women of the jury — a diverse group that includes a painter, a subway station manager, a physical therapist and a prison nurse — were ushered into a secure room shuttered from the outside world to begin the unenviable task of sorting through mounds of evidence and reaching the requisite nine-person consensus.
