Hurd Wants Accuser's Letter Shielded
Mark Hurd, the former Hewlett-Packard Co. chief executive, is fighting to keep private the letter that led to his resignation from the technology behemoth and has triggered an investigation by federal regulators.
The eight-page letter, in which former HP contractor Jodie Fisher accused Mr. Hurd of sexual harassment, is currently under seal in Delaware’s Court of Chancery as part of a shareholder suit filed against HP over the executive’s exit.
The law firm for the plaintiff in the lawsuit said in November it intended to make the letter public. Earlier this month, Mr. Hurd’s lawyers filed a motion to keep the letter under wraps.
