Read the letter that brought down HP CEO Mark Hurd

In a Houston Chronicle blog (but widely trumpeted):


Wow, that's a doozy. It's abundantly clear that HP had no other choice but to fire him.

I wonder what if anything Oracle will do with him?




It's abundantly clear that HP had no other choice but to fire him.

It sure is. Assuming the allegations are true, how can Oracle (or any public company) have him in their top ranks.

Well, yeah, but:

The Times also has obtained a timeline, provided by attorneys working for HP, of excerpts from emails sent from Fisher that tell a different story. In the emails, which are juxtaposed against passages in the letter, Fisher appears to seek more opportunities to be at events with Hurd, and expresses delight at being around him.


Fisher has since said the letter written by Allred contains many inaccuracies.

I doubt we'll ever know the full story.
