Well, there ends a very exciting couple of post-Christmas days. According to an Apple internal investigation, Steve Jobs and a few other Apple executives are clear of charges of securities fraud related to stock back-dating, according to Yahoo News.
And while Apple has concluded its own probe into the backdating scandal, Jobs and others aren’t necessarily cleared of any civil or criminal actions. The Securities and Exchange Commission and the U.S. Attorney’s Office have yet to publicly comment on whether they are investigating the matter.
It’s not over by a long shot, but it looks like Steve will remain as CEO. Even if Apple broke the law.
