Shareholder demands Apple boardroom records
Judge to order company to hand over information
Computer giant Apple is facing further
scrutiny of its accounting practices following reports that a California judge
plans to order it to turn over board-meeting minutes and records relating to
stock options accounting to an investor.
However the judge denied the shareholder’s action related to an internal
investigation into options back-dating and said any documents turned over would
be subject to a protective order barring disclosure to any other parties.
