Larry Ellison Rips HP Board a New One

theodp writes “No stranger himself to sexual harassment allegations, Oracle CEO Larry Ellison has denounced HP’s directors for forcing the resignation of HP CEO Mark Hurd. ‘The HP board just made the worst personnel decision since the idiots on the Apple board fired Steve Jobs many years ago,’ Ellison wrote. For now, it seems that Rupert Murdoch is also standing by Hurd, who sits on News Corp’s Board of Directors and its Corporate Governance Committee. Less likely to survive the scandal is Hurd’s relationship with HP General Counsel Mike Holston, who accepted Hurd’s signed separation agreement after leading an investigation into Hurd’s actions, which Holston told the NY Times ‘showed a profound lack of judgment.’ Quite a change from just last year, when Hurd and Holston teamed up to get their daughters’ elite prep school a state-of-the-art HP Data Center.”
