HP Spying Scandal May Be Settled Today

Thursday, 7 Dec 2006 | 2:23 PM ET

It looks like the California State Attorney General's office is getting ready to settle with Hewlett-Packard --over civil charges related to the corporate spying scandal. That scandal led to the resignation of HP Chairman Patricia Dunn. Don Clark is the San Francisco Bureau Chief of The Wall Street Journal.

Clark said the announcement should come after today's closing bell. He thought any monetary punishment would be a low figure. He's not sure if there will be any management shake-up as a result. The state probe dealt with how HP handled leaks from company board meetings.
