Defense Witness Says Thompson Set Up 'Collaborative Environment'
The defense has decided to call one more witness, Mike Hardiman, director of purchasing services at UW-Madison.
Hardiman worked with Thompson on a different committee in 2003-04, and had five meetings with her. He said that Thompson set up Òa very collaborative environmentÓ in the meetings.
In cross, Biskupic asked approximately how many hours those five meetings totaled. Hardiman said about 12. He also said he and Thompson have not worked together since, and they don't socialize.
