Yahoo! CEO Thompson Ousted for Falsifying Resume

Not a pretty, but probably appropriate outcome.  Would a line manager have suffered the same fate if he or she claimed to have, say a degree in electrical engineering when instead they actually graduated with a degree in Art History. I don't care how talented an engineer they might be, they don't have the darn degree. I have represented management on several of those types of matters and every case it was not even a close decision. End of story. And so it is for Mr. Thompson.

All that said, the subtext of this entire scandal is a bitter proxy fight against an entrenched board and management. In that regard, Thompson is likely a casualty in that broader struggle.
