'We've done it, we've wasted further time!' Judge raps HP over Mike Lynch court scrutiny

I ain't Spartacus Gold badge

HP have to do this, because it was either that or the board resign en masses for total incompetence.

By the time all the appeals are done, they'll have retired - so everything is fine.

It's not like they're going to get much in the way of compensation out of Lynch. It's possible they could squeeze a few hundred million out of him, but that's not going to make up for their claimed $8bn loss. Although a few hundred million here and a few hundred million there - and soon you're talking serious money.
