Link: Andersen special report
The decision was taken by the Texas Board of Public Accountancy on Friday, and based its decision on the firm’s conviction for obstruction of justice, following the collapse of its audit client, energy giant Enron.

The act is seen as a symbolic gesture since Andersen has already been stripped of its license to audit public companies.
