By the end of its fiscal year, the SEC's San Francisco office plans to have civil charges against another Silicon Valley lawyer under its belt. Several people briefed on the SEC's probe of Lisa Berry -- the former GC of KLA-Tencor Corp. and Juniper Networks -- said the commission is preparing to charge her in connection with schemes to backdate stock options at both companies. She would be the first executive in any of the 150-plus options investigations to be sued for behavior at more than one company.
