I'm going to testify.

The defense is expected to present a strategy that were trays him as a cog in the wheel of a much larger machine.

The sec claims he misled investors in a deal called abacus.

The sec made strong points yesterday with its star witness.

She testified that goldman did nothing to correct her misperceptions that billionaire john paulson was an investor in abacus when in fact he was actually betting it would fail.

The defense hammered away at schwartz's credibility, suggesting they were well aware that many hedge funds were betting against the mortgage market.

Schwartz answered she did not recall many of the documents.

The jury appearing somewhat confused and struggling to deal with these inside baseball terminologies.

Do we know for sure whether or not he has to testify.

Can he plea the fifth?

This is different from a criminal proceeding or you can plead the fifth.

In a civil file -- in a civil trial, you you are expected to testify.

We do know that he did testify before in front of the senate.

Su keenan, thank you very much.
