So far - what

To judge by the reports so far HPE has not proven anything (except that HPE had idiotic management). Unless Lynch & co do something stupid in court, HPE will lose this legal battle.

The only reason that HPE is in this legal battle is to try to save face for their management - even if they won, the actual amount of money they could get from Lynch would not come close to meeting their legal bills. By the time that HPE loses and has to pay its and Lynch's legal bills, millions of HPE's money will have been squandered - and a lot of lawyers will be laughing all the way to the bank.

One could make a reasonable case against HPE management for wasting shareholders assets on an unwinnable case.
