Jobsgate Update: Chief Absolved

For those keeping up with Steve Jobs and Apple stock option backdating story:

Apple Computer said Friday that a special committee of its board had found that its chief executive, Steven P. Jobs, was not responsible for improper dating of stock options at the company.

Investigators, led by a committee of outside directors and the law firm Quinn Emanuel Urquhart Oliver & Hedges...absolved Mr. Jobs by concluding that there had been "no misconduct" by Apple's current management team.

So that's that. Wear your mock turtles with pride again. – Mark Wilson
