Accounts whistleblower blackmailed Autonomy for a payoff, Mike Lynch tells High Court

I think maybe AC was making a joke about Mike Lynch and judge Lynch (albeit the latter was in Virginia, not Kansas, although the latter had its own share) - as Mike Lynch is trying to "lynch" a witness framing him as a blackmailer.

Some kind of last resort defense when you don't have far better arguments - and note, Autonomy didn't called in the police, they asked two private investigation firms to find evidences (which they didn't) and then mobbed and fired him. Were the accusation made up? Was Autonomy afraid a real investigation would have found a lot of other issues in Autonomy accounting practices?
