Oracle To Depose Larry Page About Java Negotiations With Sun

Oracle's Java infringement lawsuit against Google got more interest as they attempt to depose Google's CEO. Larry Page was present during the initial negotiation with Sun Microsystems to license Java for use in Android.

According to FOSS Patents, Oracle could be granted the request.  And this could serve to help bring the two parties to settle the case as the judge wanted.  In particular, the judge wants to know why Page tried to negotiate for the rights to use Java and then went away without an agreement with Sun.
