Throwing In A Little Corporate Governance

Over the holiday weekend, the USA Today had an article discussing the recent trend of including corporate governance reforms as part of the settlement of shareholder litigation. The article focuses on the recent settlements of the Siebel Systems derivative case and the Computer Associates securities class action (posted about in The 10b-5 Daily).

Addition: has posted a more comprehensive article on the same topic. The author argues that the increased participation of institutional investors as lead plaintiffs in securities class actions is behind the surge in settlements containing corporate governance reforms.
