Class opening 9:00 AM
During attendance sign in, assignments were given to different students to get us ready for a discussion. Among the assignments, Conrad was asked to pull up H-P's website.

Discussion 9:03 AM
Professor Cameron began this portion of our class by asking whether anyone had heard any news on Mark Hurd or read Case 5, The H-P Pretexting Predicament. For a good article relating to this situation CLICK HERE to read an article from the Wall Street Journal titled, "SEC Probe Examines Hurd Exit From H-P" by Ben Worthen, Justin Scheck and Joann S. Lublin.

This case ties into the sections of chapter 4 that speak on Corporate Governance.

    Class discussion was intended to be engaged about Case 5, The H-P Pretexting Predicament (page 802 in your textbook).
