Murray Comments on Amazon’s Attempt to Depose President, Other Top Officials

10 February 2020 Silicon Valley Business Journal News

Partner Frank Murray was quoted in a Silicon Valley Business Journal article, “Amazon Web Services wants to depose Trump, Mattis and others about $10B Pentagon cloud contract,” about the company’s protest of the Pentagon’s surprise decision last year to award a $10 billion cloud computing contract to its archrival Microsoft Corp.

Murray said it’s not every day in a government contracts case that you see an attempt to depose the president, but also expressed skepticism that it would ever happen. “If they have a credible enough argument of bias, they may get a chance to depose some folks,” he said. “I don’t know if they are going to be able to depose everyone they are talking about, including the president.”
