Did Ripley stand a chance at the inquest?

In Aliens (1986), Ripley gets grilled by Company and space transportation officials about her role in the destruction of the Nostromo and its expensive cargo. Needless to say, things do not end well for her. And maybe never would have.

I enjoy seeing this dude on the debriefing panel, working what looks like a crossword puzzle (or some such thing) while the drama pans out.  

As the scene opens, the camera moves frame right behind Van Leeuwen at the head of the table. Watch it as the camera continues on around the table behind this guy and over his shoulder and you will see it…

Looks like the board of inquest might have simply been going through the motions after all.
