Ex-WorldCom Directors Settle

As of today, all of the former directors sued in the WorldCom securities class action pending in the S.D.N.Y. have agreed to settle the case. The twelve board members will pay $60.75 million ($24.75 million in personal payments and $36 million from their insurers), bringing the total settlements in the case to slightly over $6 billion. The last remaining defendant is Arthur Anderson. The Associated Press has a report.
