If you're the sort to go CEO-watching, you may want to swing by Judge Lucy Koh's courtroom in the near future. Judge Koh has ordered four hours each of depositions from Apple's Tim Cook, Intel's Paul Otellini and former Google chief Eric Schmidt to glean more information about the alleged no-poaching agreements at the heart of a civil lawsuit that also includes Genentech, Intuit and Pixar. The line of questioning might not lead to any smoking gun statements -- the Department of Justice already did some homework, after all. Should Judge Koh find against the companies, however, the high-profile investigation might determine the size and scope of any potential compensation for technology workers who claim they were shortchanged for years.
