Disney Settles $20-Million 'Whistle-Blower' Lawsuit (http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-disney20jan20.story) - LA Times, 1/20/03

QuikQuote: Judy Denenholz sued Disney in March 2001, saying she was wrongfully terminated after a series of clashes with the company's chief lawyer, who allegedly was angered by her refusal to sign off on Disney's response to an IRS audit. In her suit, Denenholz said the company had substantially understated what it owed the IRS.
The case, scheduled to go to trial Jan. 27, was settled late last week. The terms were not disclosed. On Wednesday, the lawyer at the center of the case, Disney general counsel Louis Meisinger, announced his retirement. He said he was leaving to serve as an advisor to a Los Angeles law firm and would continue to be a consultant to Disney.
