Does the judge know the answer to the question? Does the judge care?
It's not really the job of the judge to care, he is supposed to uphold the law but I suppose risking the liberty of an employee is how you roll when your corporate ethos dictates that laws/litigation are “just a business negotiation being conducted in the courts.”--Eric Schmidt.
This isn't the first time a Brazilian court has threatened to jail a local googler, the first time a higher court over ruled an arrest so I think google probably feels pretty comfortable with the risk (I don't know how the local googler feels).
