Defense attorney Daniel Petrocelli focused on the Global Galactic agreementsfrom 2000 in his cross examination of Andy Fastow. The document lists sidedeals Fastow had with Enron's former chief accountant Richard Causey. Hesaid Causey verbally assured him that Jeff Skilling approved of the deals. But the memo was initialed only by Fastow and Causey.

"…in his testimony."

Petrocelli has maintained that the case against Skilling is based oncircumstantial evidence, and he's been distancing his client from Fastow'sself-confessed criminal actions. U.S. District Judge Sim Lake reservesFridays for other cases on his docket, so Petrocelli's questioning resumesMonday morning.
