Business News: H-P Chairwoman Patricia Dunn Resigns

From the NYT this afternoon:

PALO ALTO, Calif., Sept. 22 — Hewlett-Packard today announced the immediate resignation of its chairwoman, Patricia C. Dunn, the first casualty inside the company over the disclosure of its internal spying operation.

Ms. Dunn will be replaced by Mark V. Hurd, the computer giant’s chief executive officer. Mr. Hurd disclosed the change at a press conference Friday in which he and Hewlett-Packard for the first time publicly discussed a scandal that has engulfed the company for more than two weeks.
