Nowadays the action in the corporate governance arena is in the courtroom. We've been riveted by the details of the Bernie Ebers trial and the Worldcom case, and watching the two Michaels, Eisner and Ovitz, battle it out in the world of Disney. There will still be more to come what with Enron's top executives finally getting their day in court, as well as Dick Grasso, the handsomely compensated former CEO of the New York Stock Exchange. What are the evolving standards on issues like executive pay and the responsibilities of directors? Beth Young, Senior Research Associate at the Corporate Library helps us find an answer.
