PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless This rumour is not new, nor is it particularly earth-shattering. However, with Windows Phone 7 failing to make a dent in the market place, and Nokia's Lumia 800 not making huge waves either, the rumour's been taken out of the shed again: Microsoft is supposedly acquiring Nokia's smartphone division later this year. Stephen Elop will resign from Nokia shortly afterwards.

Yes. Directors are legally required to protect shareholder value. They can be sued for failure to do so.


Thanks for your answer. I've read of shareholders suing companies and/or managers. But those cases, like the current Lloyds of England case, are resting on misleading or false reports. The lawsuits are not about making losses or not maximising shareholder value. I'm not sure how that would work anyway.

So I'm not sure if your interpretation of the lawsuits isn't a bit extreme. I really would like to see some printed material about this, not to play the stupid "facts & authority" card on you, but because I'd like to learn more about this issue and my Scroogle-Fu seems to be weak ;)
