HP Can Keep Secret Report on Hurd Departure


(Reuters) - Hewlett-Packard Co does not have to turn over to a shareholder an internal report that led to the departure of former chief executive Mark Hurd, Delaware's Supreme Court ruled.

Hurd abruptly resigned last year following allegations of sexual harassment against an HP contractor. A company investigation cleared Hurd of harassment, but accused him of filing inaccurate expense reports.

A shareholder, Ernesto Espinoza, sued the company to determine whether the board had grounds to fire Hurd rather than pay him a $30 million separation. ...........

Separately, the Delaware Supreme Court is considering an appeal of a Chancery Court decision to unseal Allred' letter.
