The Director As Whistleblower
Posted by David Zaring

With a hat tip to Corp Counsel, this story about Milton Webster, board member of the Chinese firm AgFeed, who blew the whistle on his company, is really unique.  He was a member of the audit committee!  He thought that a name brand law firm was more conflicted than solution-oriented!  He resigned, and then went to the authorities (or, at least, the paintiffs)!  I don't think I've ever heard of a member of the firm's audit committee dropping a dime on the firm he directs.  You'll want to read this probe by Francine McKenna, but here's the Bloomberg long read as well.
