For $2.7M, Ellen Pao Promised Not To Appeal

If you thought you'd heard the end of the Ellen Pao case, you'd better think again. She apparently demanded $2.7 million not to appeal her case after her former employer offered to waive the $1 million she is already legal obligated to pay. eek!

"Pao is obligated, as a matter of law, to repay a portion of our legal costs. We have offered to waive these costs as a good faith attempt to bring this matter to a close. In response, Pao demanded an additional $2.7 million payment from KPCB in return for not appealing, despite the jury's unequivocal verdict in our favor on all counts. We have no intention of accepting this unreasonable demand."
