Charitable Causes Resolved

MarketWatch reports that the Oracle derivative settlement has received court approval. Under the original terms of the settlement, the CEO of Oracle agreed to pay $100 million to charity on behalf of the company, while the company was to pay $22.5 million in legal fees to plaintiffs' counsel. The proposed settlement came under criticism, with the court expressing concern over the fact that Oracle, the presumed beneficiary of the settlement, would be paying the legal fees. The approved settlement provides that the CEO of Oracle will make both payments.
