Disney Shareholders Ask for $262m in Damages
Disney Corporation shareholders suing the board of directors over the hiring and firing of former Disney President Michael Ovitz are pushing for the board to repay $262 million to the company, according to a report in the New York Post. The amount is equivalent to Ovitz’s $129.8 million severance pay plus accrued interest since his firing in 1996. Attorneys for Disney are scheduled to deliver their closing statements next month.
