A key government witness against former Brocade CEO Gregory Reyes has recanted her testimony, according to a defense motion for new trial filed Friday.

During trial, Brocade finance employee Elizabeth Moore told jurors that people in her department did not know about backdating at the company, because they had been deceived by Reyes and HR chief Stephanie Jensen. Moore was the only finance employee prosecutors called to the stand, Reyes’ lawyers said in the motion.
