No.

HP allege fraud, so they have to prove (on balance of probabilities) that fraud happened. That's what this evidence is looking to establish. I believe they'll also need to establish that they suffered loss through that fraud, which may be a higher bar given what everyone from Oracle to Reg commentards were saying at the time.

Ultimately what matters is the judge's view on it: whether (and to what extent) it's true, relevant, etc. But we won't know that for quite a while yet unless something dramatic happens.
