Hewlett-Packard's Dunn To Be Indicted With Four Others

Business Week has broken the story that California Attorney General will seek indictments on felony charge today against former Hewlett-Packard chairwoman Patricia Dunn and four others involved in the company's corporate spying scandal. Chief executive Mark Hurd can breathe a sigh of relief—the AG is reportedly not planning on bringing charges against him.
All of this is good news for H-P investors, as the legal liability for the leak investigation seems contained to a few individuals and doesn’t seem to be landing on any of the company’s top management.
Official word of the indictments is expected to come in the form of a press conference scheduled for around 6 PM (EST) tonight.
