Ellen Pao and Kleiner Perkins in Heated Negotiations

Ellen Pao ended her gender bias trial against Kleiner, Perkins, Caufield & Byers in legal defeat — but with a new image as a feminist heroine.
Pao has considered filing an appeal to the court case she lost in San Francisco Superior Court, and she and Kleiner Perkins are in heated negotiations over how much it will cost to get her to drop her plan. A source close to the matter confirmed to Mashable the filing will reveal that Ms. Pao recently asked the venture capital firm for around $2.7 million to drop her appeal, a process she set in motion earlier this week by filing a notice of her intentions.
