Hewlett-Packard Co.

Silicon Valley, CA: California Attorney General Bill Lockyer filed charges against the computer maker alleging unfair business practices regarding a spying scandal. The case was filed in Santa Clara County Superior Court and claimed Hewlett-Packard violated privacy and ethics laws. Boardroom leaks to the media prompted the HP Chairwoman to order a wide-ranging investigation that ultimately included gaining access to private phone records of board members and reporters. Hewlett-Packard did not admit wrongdoing, but has agreed to pay a $14.5 million settlement. (Dec-08-06) [LOS ANGELES TIMES: HP SPYING]
