Dell is in settlement talks with the Securities and Exchange Commission to resolve allegations that its founder/CEO Michael Dell engaged in financial irregularities related to Dell’s dealings with chip-maker Intel — with no admission of guilt or bar of Dell from service as an officer or a public company. Visiting law Professor Elizabeth Nowicki, a former SEC and Wall Street attorney, says it indicates the SEC is focused on bigger issues and might be willing to defer in the Dell matter to a similar lawsuit filed by New York’s attorney general.
“The SEC can only vigorously fight so many battles at a given time.”
