The board of embattled Rambus Inc. recently hired Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom to investigate the wife of CEO Harold Hughes. Nancy Hughes spent much of the past year posting messages under an alias on an online message board for Rambus investors, defending her husband and the company and criticizing others, including the company's former GC, John Danforth. The board's investigation uncovered no wrongdoing on the part of Harold Hughes, Rambus spokeswoman Linda Ashmore said.
