"The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filed a lawsuit against two former Apple Inc. top executives for their roles in backdating stock-option grants, including some made to Chief Executive Officer Steve Jobs.
Former Apple General Counsel Nancy Heinen's lawyers have said she'll fight the case. The SEC settled with former Chief Financial Officer Fred Anderson. He agreed to forfeit $3.5 million and pay a $150,000 fine to resolve claims he filed false financial reports and had inadequate accounting controls at the Cupertino, California-based company, the SEC said."
